Multi- modal neuroimaging. media art.

My name is Zaki Alasmar

After diverse life experience, I decided to pursue studies in cognitive sciences.

I am a Master's of Arts student training in experimental psychology at the Neural Architecture, Behaviour, and Connectivity Lab (NeuralABC; Concordia University, Montreal, Canada) and PERFORM Research Centre.

Working on novel computational modelling of human neuroanatomy in health and disease, and using structural, functional, and diffusion neuroimaging in addition to EEG and MEG, sometimes several method simultaneously.

Interested in cognitive neuroscience, multimedia art, and philosophy.


Ongoing Research Projects
