The Suvrathan lab is part of the Centre for Research in Neuroscience, at McGill University. We investigate how neurons and neural circuits in the cerebellum adapt during learning.
The synaptic connections between neurons can undergo plastic changes during learning, thereby storing new information. We are interested in understanding the neural signals that trigger such changes, the intracellular mechanisms that support them, and the principles that determine how neural circuits encode specific memories. We investigate the cerebellum, using a combination of techniques at the synaptic, cellular and systems levels.
The Suvrathan lab opened at McGill University in 2018!
