Azita: Scatter brain
"The Scissor Girls took a cue from the gods in the No New York
Pantheon, then twisted their barbed-wire deconstructivism into the corpse
of their elders' art. Music For Scattered Brains provides more irrefutable
proof of Azita's distinctive vision, both sonically and visually."

ON THE ORIGIN OF THE ROTATION OF GALAXIES
Dr. Azita Valinia
Understanding how galaxies form and how they acquire rotation are some
of the fundamental challenges of astrophysics today. After briefly reviewing
possible scenarios for the origin of the rotation of galaxies, I focus
on the hydrodynamical mechanism.

Paper: Modular Decomposition in Visuomotor Learning
"The principle of `divide-and-conquer,' the decomposition of a
complex task into simpler subtasks each learned by a separate module, has
been proposed as a computational strategy during learning. We explore the
possibility that the human motor system uses such a modular decomposition
strategy to learn the visuomotor map, the relationship between visual inputs
and motor outputs."
