Hello

What is my mistake in the below text.

In computational and theoretical neuroscience area, topics such as consciousness and memory are fascinating for me.

I think I have made a mistake in the red parts. Am I right? I am dubious whether to put for or to. Also, I do not know whether to put comma after "neuroscience area" or not.

Thank You

    To is marginally more idiomatic than for, but much better than either is topics such as ....fascinate me. The comma is necessary to separate the parenthetical part from the gramatical sentence. It makes it easier for your reader to figure where the subject of the sentence starts.

    In the phrase before the comma, something is missing.
    At the very least, it should begin with "In the...".
    I wonder if you are talking about one area, or two.
    Either way, I would say
    "In the area(s) of..."

    Yes, that's a good point. In the area of computational and theoretical neuroscience, ... sounds more idiomatic.
