Amrita Mind Brain Center

Neurological disorders are increasingly recognized as major causes of death and disability worldwide. Globally, in 2016, neurological disorders were the leading cause of disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) and second leading cause of deaths. Focusing on a need to understand neurological conditions, brain function and disorders, techniques, methods and devices to help patients, the Amrita Mind Brain Center will be dedicated towards exploration into the human mind and its links to the brain through multiple disciplines in science and technology.

research

Our research involves the development and analysis of computational models in order to study synaptic plasticity, associative memory and information processing in the cerebellum and inter-related circuits. Other work at the lab is on bio-robotics and neuromorphic hardware, neuroscience of yoga and Indian relaxation techniqies besides development of tools and pedagogical techniques for enhancing bioscience laboratory education. Computational neuroscience research seeks to comprehend how the brain learns and computes to achieve intelligent behavior in addition to interpreting neurological conditions. It is an interdisciplinary endeavor at the intersection of computer science, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, physics, engineering, mathematics, and statistics.
