Research interests

Our research interests are to understand brain network functions in healthy populations and their impairments in psychiatric disorders. Our brain, comprised of complex networks, processes information according to the demand of environments. Optimal information processing in our brain, achieved by control of communication in brain networks, is crucial for adaptive behavioural control. However, such communication in the brain is disturbed in psychiatric disorders. Therefore, studying brain network function help to understand brain functionalities as well as psychiatric illness.
