"Abhishek Banerjee + MIT"

Abhi did his D.Phil at University of Oxford with Ole Paulsen studying the role of spike-timing dependent plasticity in cortical circuit development. He was a Simons Fellow at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) studying visual cortical plasticity and the role of inhibitory interneurons in neurodevelopmental disorders (Rett syndrome) using in vivo electrophysiology and two-photon imaging tools. He was also a Teaching Fellow in Neurobiology at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University. Abhi was also a Marie Curie Fellow and NARSAD Young Investigator in Brain Research Institute, University of Zurich, before taking up an Associate Professor position in Systems Neuroscience in Newcastle University.
