Moataz Assem, PhD

Research Associate, University of Cambridge


Before I joined NeurAl, I studied Medicine at Alexandria University and founded the Alexandria Neuroscience Committee to improve neuroscience research and education in Alexandria.

I  started here as an intern then enrolled in the Biomedical Engineering MS program at Bogazici University specializing in the Neuroengineering track.

My thesis project investigates fMRI responses of the Multiple Demand system  (MD) under the co-advising of Evelina Fedorenko at MIT Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department. I investigate the relation between individual differences in executive abilities and MD activity through fusion of behavioral measures with fMRI BOLD measures.



Research Interests

Multiple Demand System; executive functions disorders;  Multimodal neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG, ECoG); Multivariate statistics

Esin Karahan, PhD

Department of Psychology, Cardiff University, UK


I received my B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering in 2005 and M.S. degree  in 2007  and my Ph.D. degree in 2015 in biomedical engineering  from Boğaziçi University. During my PhD studies I attended ESMRMB Lectures on MRI – fMRI titled “From Neurophysiology to Cognitive Neuroscience” in Tubingen, Germany and FENS-IBRO Summer School “Imaging Brain Function in animals and Humans” in Lausanne-Geneva, Switzerland. I visited Cuban Neuroscience Center, Havana, Cuba in 2013. I woked as a postdoctoral fellow at the UESTC, Chengdu, China for 18 months  as a collaborator to Dr. Pedro Valdes-Sosa.  Currently, I’m a postdoctoral fellow at the CUBRIC in Cardiff University in UK. I am a member of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping and the Turkish Magnetic Resonance Society.
