I am a pediatric doctor who loves to sail in many seas, from mathematics to physics, from biology to medicine, from philosophy to history and linguistics and, above all, logic and neuroscience.
Looking for unexpected, hidden multidisciplinary relationships, I have had the undeserved honour to publish in refereed Journals very different from each other (e.g., nuts in Nature, New England Jornal of Medicine, Physics of Life Reviews, PLOS Biology, Cognitive Neurodynamics, International Journal of Theoretical Physics, Entropy, Synthese, and so on).
I never took my teachers' advice: "Tozzi, be on focus!"
My metatheoretic starting point is what I term “testable rationalism”: experimental previsions arising from top-down, deductive mathematical/topological approaches.
