He is the director of an interdisciplinary laboratory, interested in computational neuroscience and computational cognition. Research in the lab in recent years has primarily revolved around the neural mechanisms and computational principles underlying different types of learning.
The goal of the NeuroBridges initiative is to advance the understanding of the brain by providing high-quality neuroscience education at graduate school level. At the same time, we seek to bring together Mediterranean and Middle Eastern scientists, in order to promote international scientific cooperation between young researchers from these countries. The organizers of NeuroBridges are convinced that such scientific collaborations can lead to personal relations, which eventually may alleviate the political distress in the Middle East.
