At the Amrita Mind Brain Center, we explore the brain and mind organization and function using experimental methods, computational neuroscience, and cognitive modelling from an interdisciplinary perspective going through the effects of neurotransmitters, network dynamics, and behaviour, during normal and disease conditions. Our researchers jointly work with the School of Medicine, School of Engineering, School of Biotechnology, School of Ayurveda, and School of Spiritual and Cultural Studies, relating brain and mind on various topics.Read More
Investigate brain function, dysfunction, and therapy with an emphasis on cognition, computations and neural engineering.
To develop novel engineering solutions for neurological and psychiatric conditions and disorders by harnessing technologies and methods for exploring brain function.
Inspire. Explore. Discover.
The center will inspire younger minds to study and solve brain and behavior related problems while connecting scientists, engineers, physicians, and the community to tackle the challenges of brain related wellness and disorders. The center will lead research to healthcare for immediate impact.
“As an interdisciplinary research and teaching center, we draw faculty and topics from many schools at Amrita including Schools of Medicine, Engineering, Ayurveda, Biotechnology, Spiritual and Cultural Studies. The key labs and research focus at the center are the following.“
The Amrita Mind Brain Center presents an excellent opportunity for students through its M.Sc. program in Yoga and Cognitive Science. This program is designed to provide students with a unique platform to cultivate their expertise and succeed in their desired careers. Specifically, students with a strong research interest can delve into promising career paths focused on studying the intricate relationship between yoga, meditation techniques, the brain, cognition, and related diseases. By leveraging the center’s expertise and resources, including a team of highly qualified faculty members in this specialized field, students can embark on a fulfilling journey of exploration and contribute to advancing knowledge in this interdisciplinary domain.
Multi-Scale Brain Function India-Italy Network of Excellence (MSBFIINE) Network of Excellence Project
Multi-Scale Brain Function India-Italy Network of Excellence (MSBFIINE) Network of Excellence Project funded by DST (India)-MAE(Italy) (2022-2024)
This network of excellence themed on biomedical sciences coordinated by Amrita with IIT Madras, IIT Hyderabad, and Italian Universities of Milan, Pavia and Modena and Emilia-Romagna will explore the fundamental principles of how central nervous systems cells and circuits can be understood and functionally translated into mechanisms that can later be abstracted for devices. Towards Sensorimotor control: An interdisciplinary approach to investigate using mathematical models, neuronal and circuit functions in the cerebellum, basal ganglia, and spinal cord networks. This modelling of connecting realistic large-scale microcircuit models focuses to model circuits and population signals that are critical to understanding brain function and dysfunction.
