Dr Ahmed Moustafa

Psychology (School of Social Science and Psychology)Ahmed Moustafa


I started my studies in mathematics and computer science; while in the US, I switched to psychology and neuroscience.

Research Interests

Cognitive Neuroscience, Neural Networks, Neuropsychology, and brain imaging.

  1. Computational modelling:
    Specifically, I am interested in using neural network, Bayesian, and algebraic models to simulate Cognitive and Motor processes, including topics as locomotion, motor learning, language production, and other kinds of motor actions.
  2. Cognitive and neuropsychological studies:
    To test model predictions, I also conduct behavioural experiments of motor and cognitive processes in patient populations. My behavioural experiments reveal the importance of various neural systems in motor and cognitive processes.
  3. Brain imaging:
    I am also involved in brain imaging studies to test motor and cognitive processes.
