Nabil's interdisciplinary research interests are in corticonics (echoing electronics), where he combines known features of cortical organizations with concepts and tools from nonlinear dynamics, chaos, and information theory. Nabil works to decipher and model the complex way in which the cortex interacts with subcortical structures to produce the mechanisms that underlie higher-order brain function. The result, a testable macroscopic brain theory, is being used by Nabil and his students in the PennBrain project that offers distinct computational and hardware advantages over other similar endeavors.
