SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

As the field of Neuroscience evolves, it not only gives answers but also raises new questions as to how we conceive our existence from a philosophical point of view. My personal interest is focused on a better understanding of neurological and psychiatric disorders, such as depression and schizophrenia. With answers gained through scientific research, I hope to contribute in the relief of patients suffering from these diseases.
