Sthitapranjya Pati

Research Fellow

Sthitapranjya is a postdoctoral researcher in Stephenson-Jones lab where he is studying how brains learn arbitrary sensorimotor associations. Animals simultaneously perceive and act on the world around to maximize their chance to survive, grow, and reproduce. He is trying to delineate the neuronal circuits that compute and communicate animal’s own actions to brain regions responsible for learning specific action-outcome contingencies. Before joining SWC, he earned a PhD working with Prof. Vidita Vaidya at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India where he studied neural mechanisms that program long lasting behavioural changes during early life.
