Can we discover the neural representation underlying any behavior?


With the opening of our eyes, we see thousands of images every day, memorize and recall hundreds of people and scenes, walk and talk effortlessly, and have no concern about the heart, beating regularly. All thanks to this fantastic mostly-of-fat organ called BRAIN. I enjoy studying the brain and step-by-step, finding out how neural activity gives rise to the behavior.
I am fascinated by the world, which is formed at the intersection of Machine Learning and Neuroscience. Brain modeling alongside with the brain studies would help extend our understanding of the brain.
I am also interested in studying the brain in health and disease. This little guy gives us a tough time when it gets sick. Mental disorders are mostly complex, and this makes them interesting and valuable to study.

I am currently a Research Assistant at Khaligh-lab, working on the temporal dynamics of object recognition in patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's Disease (AD). We employ multiple neuroimaging modalities (EEG/fMRI) to explore the process of visual information processing in the brain of patients with MCI and AD.
