Biography

Spent about 15 years of teaching (20%) and research activities (80%) in Rudolf Magnus Institue for Neurosciences in the Netherlands. The main work was devoted to exploring the effects of diabetes mellitus on the higher brain function, namely memory, and behavior. The work included an electrophysiological recording from the hippocampus (Extra- and Intracellular recordings), and also studying the behavior by water maze tests. This resulted into tens of published papers in top journals.
We also built a model of accelerated aging that could be caused by diabetes mellitus when we suggested that the effects of diabetes mellitus on the brain cognitive functions are very similar to the changes that take place during normal aging.
I moved about 10 years ago to Arabian Gulf University as a professor and chairperson of physiology department. Several research projects are running under my supervision including effects of DM on cognition, motor coordination and behavior.
