Mriganka Sur is a professor of neuroscience and the director of the Simons Center for the Social Brain at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The Sur laboratory studies the development, plasticity and dynamics of cerebral cortical circuits. Using state-of-the-art techniques, the laboratory aims to uncover fundamental mechanisms of brain wiring and processing during development and in adulthood and to understand how such processes go awry in disorders of brain development such as autism and Rett syndrome.
