    Mini-symposium Held at IUST

    In July, 2017 we held a one-day mini-symposium at IUST, for the interchange of scientific expertise and findings between different projects of the our lab and external collaborating teams. The lectures were organized in two panels: Invited talks (given by principle investigators cooperating with our lab) and Project presentations (delivered by PhD students). Topics ranging all the way from the dynamics of neural coding in primate brain to computational approaches in modeling the neural system were covered through these lectures. Importantly we had the honor to host Dr. Fatemeh Bakouie (Shahid Beheshti University), Dr. Zeinab Fazlali (IPM School of Cognitive Sciences), Prof. Dr. Shahriyar Gharibzadeh (Amirkabir University of Technology) and Dr. Marzieh Zare (IPM School of Computer Sciences), to present their ongoing research lines in the symposium.

    The surgery center has been launched in the Cognitive Neurobiology Lab

    We are pleased to announce that on Sep 2016, we launched a non-human primate surgery center in IPM School of Cognitive Sciences. The surgery room is equipped with the most modern equipment enabling primate neuroscientists to carry out the most sophisticated brain surgeries. These surgeries are aimed at implanting either fixation or neural implants. Facilities such as accurate human-level monitoring and anesthesia systems enable us to carry out surgeries with the highest standards of animal welfare.
