I am a computational neuroscientist, currently working for the Human Brain Project at KTH, Stockholm. I am interested in understanding how neural syntax is structured and transformed between different hierarchical levels in the brain. During my PhD at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bengaluru, I worked on the neuronal and molecular levels.
At the neuronal level, we showed that a precise EI balance exists in the brain, where random presynaptic inputs are balanced at fast (\(\lt \tau_m\)) timescales. Moreover, precise EI balance in a feedforward EI network naturally leads to a subthreshold gain control computation .
At the molecular level, I looked at all possible small bistable chemical reaction networks. These can work as biological flip-flops and store 1 bit of chemical memory at chemical synapses. Here we showed that certain patterns of chemical networks can be very robust to memory erasure due to different kinds of perturbations.
