Brief Description of Research Interest :
I am interested in the system level mechanisms in the sensory areas controlling altered discriminative touch behaviors and other sensory deficits in different mouse models of Autism spectral disorders. I want to understand how do major Neurodevelopmental disorder (Autism/ intellectual disability) risk genes impact sensory processing/function? And How do alterations in sensory function contribute to major outcomes seen in Neurodevelopmental disorders, such as behavioral abnormalities and cognitive impairment?
