Research Interest

We are interested in examining the network-level structural and functional brain connectivity, changes, and function in the healthy and disease brains. Our multimodal approach permits us to investigate the complex relationship between neural activity and its function.



Group Members


Anshita Singh

I received Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) degree in Computer Science and a Master of Technology (M.tech) degree in Software Engineering from Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University. My current position is as a Senior Research Fellow, where I am focusing on the study of paediatric bipolar disorder patients using various neuroimaging techniques, including Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), fMRI, and VBM. My research involves quantifying the changes in the brain that occur in patients with bipolar disorder, using these advanced imaging modalities. By utilizing DTI and other imaging techniques, I am able to obtain a detailed understanding of the brain's structure and function, which is essential for the development of effective diagnostic and treatment strategies.


Himanshu R Pandey

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Electronic Science with Honours from Delhi University and a Master's degree in Electronic Science from Gorakhpur University. My current role as a Junior Research Fellow is focused on investigating the effects of tinnitus on brain using an in-house 3T MRI Scanner. To achieve this, I am using a range of techniques, including tonotopic mapping, fMRI, neural connectivity, and advanced task-based connectivity analysis. My aim is to gain a deeper understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying tinnitus and its impact on the brain's functioning. By utilizing cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques, I am able to study the changes in neural activity and connectivity that occur in response to tinnitus, which can help inform the development of more effective treatments for this condition.


Kalpana Dhanik

I received my Bachelor's degree in Zoology, Botany, and Chemistry, followed by a Master's degree in Microbiology. My broad interests lie in the fields of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, and I have a special passion for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and its potential to further our understanding of the brain. I am working as a Project Associate. My current research is focused on investigating the compensatory plasticity, learning, and adaptation that occur in the brain in response to sensory loss. This is a fascinating area of study that has important implications for understanding the mechanisms underlying the brain's ability to adapt and compensate for changes in sensory input. To conduct this, I am using a variety of tools and techniques, including structural and functional connectivity analysis, which allow to explore the complex network of connections within the brain and understand how they are affected by sensory loss.
