SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am interested in dynamic plasticity of the brain, especially during learning and memory formation. I believe that understanding our memory is a key to comprehend how our brain works and what distinguishes it from other species. I am also interested in language-based higher-older consciousness.
