Mojtaba is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Neurosurgery, Stanford University School of Medicine. Given his background in physics, he carries out research in the fields of theoretical and computational neuroscience with an interest in time delay dynamics, dynamical systems, synaptic plasticity and spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP). He is determined to understand the impact of propagation delays on the effects of stimulation patterns for computational optimization of therapeutic brain stimulation techniques. To this end, he studies how dendritic and axonal propagation delays shape neuronal activity and synaptic connectivity patterns in plastic neuronal networks.
