Dr. AmirAli Farokhniaee

Research Scientist

I am a research scientist with a solid background in physics, and research focus on theoretical and computational neuroscience. I am the principal investigator of a project that is funded by science foundation Ireland industrial fellowship programme to develop new adoptive strategies for closed-loop deep brain stimulators. This project is a collaboration between University College Dublin, Ireland and Newronika S.P.A. in Milan, Italy. My research also involves multiscale modeling of DBS functionality and developing network oscillation models within the context of the thalamo-cortical microcircuit in movement. The ultimate goal is to understand the fundamentals of corresponding  neuronal network activities in normal, parkinsonian, and stimulated conditions.

My Work

Unlocking Our Brain’s Mysteries

Unlocking the complexity and immense interconnectivity of the most complex system in the universe, our brain, is a major goal of my research. To this end, I utilize the established methods in computational neuroscience, mathematical physics, engineering and physics of complex systems to acquire an overall understanding of the brain's robust phenomena. Have a look at some of my main fields of research below.

Computational Modelling of thalamo-cortical microcircuits for human movement

April 12, 2025

We still have only a very limited understanding of Gene Sequencing. Answering questions about this is essential for understanding the mechanistic role it plays on other scientific processes, and for developing tools to further explore this research avenue with more sensitive measurements and improved data collection.

Deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease

April 12, 2025

In an effort to gain a better understanding of Gene Transcription Enhancers, I have recently begun to use a new technique to investigate the organization and functionality of the diverse parts of my experimental model. I am currently looking to expand this work by collaborating with other labs who have the facilities and prior experience to investigate this project further.

We still have only a very limited understanding of New Generations, New Diseases. Answering questions about this is essential for understanding the mechanistic role it plays on other scientific processes, and for developing tools to further explore this research avenue with more sensitive measurements and improved data collection.

Sound/Music perception and computational modeling of the auditory system

April 12, 2025

In an effort to gain a better understanding of Scanning Electron Microscopy, I have recently begun to use a new technique to investigate the organization and functionality of the diverse parts of my experimental model. I am currently looking to expand this work by collaborating with other labs who have the facilities and prior experience to investigate this project further.
