I am a Howard Hughes Medical Institute postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Molecular Biology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University.  In December 2012 I joined Carlos Brody’s lab and I am studying neural basis of parametric working memory.

My general interest is in memory organization, and I strive to understand memory, cognition, and behavior, at the level of their mechanistic implementation in the brain tissue, as the emergent property of millions of highly interactive micro functioning units.

From Fall 2018, I will start my lab at Sainsbury Wellcome Centre, UCL, in London. I am looking to recruit techs/postdocs/students. Please contact me if interested!

can we explain these differences?

Umberto Boccioni


read this passage by William James from 1918:

"The stream of thought flows on; but most of its segments fall into the bottomless abyss of oblivion. Of some, no memory survives the instant of their passage. Of others, it is confined to a few moments, hours, or days. Others, again, leave vestiges which are indestructible, and by means of which they may be recalled as long as life endures. Can we explain these differences?" William James, The Principles of Psychology, 1918
