Education and Work Experience
    Neurobiologists, pioneered in the study of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of neural plasticity in the brain. Based on the study of in vitro culture and in vivo nervous system, he revealed the basic principles that determine the growth of neurons and the strength of synaptic connections, and how do neurons make growth decisions based on the concentration of signaling molecules inside their cells , which defines temporal parameters of synaptic plasticity.
