I am a cognitive neuroscientist. I am interested in the intersection of visual cognition and action. Using behavioral techniques, I investigate the processing of visual input for the purpose of actions and using functional MRI, I explore the properties of the human parietal cortex, a region that is the bridge between the visual and motor areas of the brain. I have an M.D. from Tehran Medical University and a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from Harvard University. I am currently a research fellow with Dr. Leslie Ungerleider at the Laboratory for Brain and Cognition.
