Halima joins the Lighthouse project on artificial intelligence-guided neuromodulation between EPFL’s Neuro X Institute and the Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering.

Halima’s research uses behavioural approaches and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to assess cognitive and conscious aspects of apathy and its dependence on neural network functional connectivity in healthy subjects and patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Halima is a neuroscientist and completed her Bachelor's degree at the University of Rochester (United States) and her Master and Doctoral degrees at the University of Geneva (Switzerland). She is especially curious about how dynamic functional connectivity between large-scale brain networks give rise to higher-order cognitive and socio-emotional functions, such as attention, decision-making, and meta-cognition.
