Lab Head and Senior Lecturer
Affiliations: King's College, London
Deepak is the head of the Neuronal Circuitry and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Group (NCND). The goal of his group’s work is to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie synaptic communication within the mammalian cortex. In particular, they are interested in how excitatory synapses respond to cues within the environment, thus contributing to the refinement of neural circuitry, and ultimately, contributing to cognitive function. In addition, Deepak’s group is interested in how these mechanisms are altered in neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders.
