SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

My scientific interests are human cognitions, such as learning, memory, and language. These cognitive works can be properly executed only under the circumstances of well-orchestrated cellular and molecular interaction. However, our understanding of cognitions still remains very limited. My goal, therefore, is to study the underlying mechanisms of how our brains can think, learn, or speak..
