Research Groups:

Theoretical Neuroscience

Theoretical neuroscience has entered a new phase of maturity which poses many exciting questions at the forefront of brain sciences. These include what the basic properties of brain's dynamics are, such as normalization, amplification, superlinear addition, etc., as well as asking the question of whether or not there are some units of computation upon which the cortical activity is based on. It is now generally known that brain's spontaneous activity and its intrinsic oscillations and neural variability carries some deep insight into how the basic operations of the brain unfolds. Also, in light of new imaging techniques and advances in data analysis we are now in a much better position than just a decade ago to study one of the most fundamental questions of brain sciences, namely, what is the relation between the structure and the function of the brain and how it all relates to behavior. more...

Computational Neuroscience

This Group is interested in developing computer simulations of the neural and synaptic mechanisms, disease process, or cognitive phenomena such as attention, recognition, visual object recognition, spatial processing and navigation, motor function, language and consciousness.

Vision Neuroscience

Since 2002, this group is the pioneer in primate electrophysiology in Iran. Past and present researchers of this group have made a strong collaborative network which spans over a broad range of issues related to Vision including mechanisms of visual system, visual attention, visual perception, and visual recognition.

Brain Mapping Centre

This Centre is dedicated to understanding of the brain through state-of-the-art technology such as MRI, MEG, EEG, NIRS, cTMS, tDCS, immunohistochemistry, stereology, etc. These techniques help us to visualise and quantify brain structure and function in health and disease. The expertise working in this lab mainly include faculties of the IPM as well as Shahid Beheshti University. These scientists work on three major areas of MRI Physics, Analysis and Statistics, and Translational Imaging. We welcome national and international collaborations. more...
