Nader Nikbakht Nasrabadi

Nader Nikbakht is a postdoctoral research fellow in Mathew Diamond's Tactile perception and learning lab. He is interested in understanding the principles of brain function underlying animal cognition and behavior. His experiments focus on understanding neuronal circuit computations involved in multisensory information processing and decision making. Taking advantage of various tools and techniques in systems neuroscience he approaches the problem by combining theories of statistical computations with behavioral surveys of perceptual decision making and extracellular electrophysiology in rats.
