Ruben A.Tikidji-Hamburyan, PhD in Computer Science (2003, thesis: "Development and study of neuron model for construction of recurrent medium- and large-scale networks"), researcher.
Currently, research interests of Ruben Tikidji-Hamburyan include:

  • realistic neuron and neural network modeling;
  • algorithm and methods to analyze a focal and impulse activity in the cerebral and cerebellar cortices;
  • analyzing relations between activity dynamics in neural networks and single neurons.

    Tikidji-Hamburyan has more then 20 publications in Russian and international editions.
    He participated in several projects on studying and modeling highly specific neuron ensembles, mechanisms of integration of different modality inputs to cerebellar Purkinje cells, and mechanisms of generation of simple and complex impulses of cerebellar Purkinje cells.
    Tikidji-Hamburyan was the principal investigator of the KRINC grant "Investigation of neuron mechanisms of ensemble forming by methods of biologically plausible modeling" and is the principle investigator of a project on "Universities of Russia" Program.
    He is a member of Organizing Committees of several international conferences and supervisor of students' research work.
