My research interest is to understand the effect of non-Pharmacological Neuroenhancement techniques (rTMS, tDCS, tACS, tRNS) and Pharmacological neuroenhancement agents (such as Nootropics) on neural plasticity in human brain, and the consequence of these changes for human behaviors, cognition, and Brain disorders.
I am also very interested in studying the Cellular and Molecular mechanisms underlying higher brain functions.
