Welcome to my website!
About my past, present, and future aspiration!
I'm a neuroscientist, a mum, and the founder of NeuroAcer. I am originally from Iran. I moved abroad in 2010 and traveled and lived in different countries over the past decade. I am an associate professor at Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience in Norway.
My passion is to help people protect their brains. I've studied how the brain processes emotion and cognition over the last 10 years using imaging methods. I am excited to share what we've learned from studying the brain, so it can help you to protect yours.
As a first-time mum, the challenge of raising another human being got me inspired to share what I know, in terms of brain knowledge, and what I feel, as a mum, to help others going through a similar journey as me.
Social cognitive aging
In this line of work, we are exploring how age affects our perception of emotion and social cues. We are laveraging multimodal imaging and examining structural and functional systems underlie social and emotional processing as we get older.
Belief bias and logical reasoning
In this line of work, we asked a question of how our assumptions impact our reasoning and whether that is affected by age. We have designed novel paradigm to investigate functional networks underlying belief bias as we get old.
