Mohamady obtained an MSc in Neuroscience from University College London before joining the laboratory of Professor Ole Paulsen at the University of Cambridge to complete his PhD. During his PhD, Mohamady used a combination of in vivo and ex vivo electrophysiology, optogenetic activation and silencing, and behavioural assessment to uncover a lateralisation in the pathways involved in long-term plasticity and learning in mice.

He joined Dr David Dupret’s Group as a Postdoctoral researcher in April 2016. His work in the Dupret Group involves investigating the dynamics of neuronal assemblies across distinct sub-regions of the hippocampus during spatial behaviour and dissecting the neural pathways involved in supervised and unsupervised learning.
