My main interest is focused in understanding how the memory and learning processes work and develop. These two aspects of brain functionality are key points to address solutions for neurological disorders that involve one or both processes. Moreover, with the improved knowledge of the commented processes, it would be possible to improve the educational system with new and revolutionary tools and methodologies that maximize the human cognitive capacity taking into account each individual feature. Last but not least, it also would give rise to developing computational technology mimicking how the different brain circuits function.
