I was born and raised in Tehran Iran .I came to the U.S in 1976 to study psychology. With time decided to hang my hat here and became a U.S. citizen.
My areas of interest in psychology are varied. However I mostly work with stroke patients. I minored in history and Anthropology in college. I worked as a clinical neuropsychologist and as an assistant professor of psychology in Northeastern Ohio Medical University. I have written articles, books, and Invented treatments for serious neurological conditions.Currently my focus is on research for treatment of hemianopsia.
I fought in Iranian revolution, Iranian politics and American politics. However, politics has a second place in my life and is replaced by research in my field.

The last real treatment taking care of this neurological condition was introduction of L-dopa in 1964. During the last fifty years there have been tremendous achievements in diagnosis of this neurological problem, from CT scan, to Functional MRI. There are a wide variety of diagnostic instruments, however the treatments have been marginal and there has been no real breakthrough until now.

Ayatollah Khomeini's fame in western countries is mostly related to the events which took place from 1979 to 1982. However, he had been a part of Iranian politics since the early 1950's. His introduction to western media was due to his leadership during the Iranian revolution of 1979.

I am convinced that the 1953 MI6/CIA coup had the most massive, irreversible, and destructive, impact on all the countries of the Middle East as well as the United States. The damage is so profound and so horrific that its unintended consequences will never get buried in history books. Nothing has changed. The U.S. continues to befriend the trash of the Middle East.

SHARE Saturday, January 23, 2010 The Iranian People's Struggle for Freedom, Part IV. Socialism (1)
The blowback from the severe dictatorship of the last 100 years is the main cause of the attraction to socialism. Although the socialist movements consisted of very small cells, the long border with the Soviet Union and the strong desire of Russians to get to the Persian Gulf modified these sporadic movements to serious uprisings which could have easily turned Iran into one of the Soviet Republics.

It was the day of "Ashura" - the most sacred day of the Shiite sect of Islam. Ashura is a day dedicated to those who knowingly choose martyrdom for the cause of God and would not give in to those who are in position of power. This Ashura was not the usual mourning of the saints who were killed 1400 years ago. This year there was a real rebellion against the forces of evil.

In dealing with the current problems of the Middle East, obviously it is quite important to understand the differences between Shiites and Sunnies. Furthermore, with the addition of the American presence, this situation has become more complicated. Unfortunately, there is very little in-depth analysis of this topic, leaving the impression that these are just a bunch of primitive people who just like to fight.

The term for war in Arabic is "harb" like battles of Second World War. But the most common form of fighting among Arabs is not a "harb" It is a "ghazveh", which means raid. That is when a small group of men attack the other group fast and get away with whatever they can. Historically Arabs have been better in raids than battles, and that was the battle plan that Saddam laid.
