I am a brain-mind scientist dedicated to adressing the hardest problems. The main motive for my studies is the explanatory gap between the brain and the mind. My interest is in how the physical world of neuronal activity produces the mental world of perception and cognition. My research led me to introduce the concepts of ideasthesia (meaning "sensing concepts") and practopoiesis (meaning "creation of actions"; http://www.danko-nikolic.com/practopoiesis/). I want to use this theoretical knowledge to create artificial systems that are biologically-like intelligent and adaptive.
