SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
100,000,000,000 nerve cells in the brain is not only complex but intriguing; this is where my interest for neuroscience stems from. My research interest lies in cognition and neurodegenerative diseases. It would be a challenge to investigate not only the biochemical but molecular and physiological mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases. I would like also to discover the neurological basis of cognitive control and how these in turn influence the sensory input or motor output, thus establishing a link between neuromodulating systems and cognitive control. Through my research I hope to use a multidisciplinary approach to contribute to treatment for patients.
