In the Sreenivasan lab, we are interested in how the brain forms and implements goals. Our primary focus is the neurobiological basis of working memory, which is the process that allows us to actively hold on to information over brief periods. Working memory is what underlies our ability to communicate, to problem solve, and to think abstractly.
The Sreenivasan lab is a part of the Division of Science and Mathematics at New York University Abu Dhabi [more]
Symposium proposal accepted! Kartik’s symposium proposal, “Rethinking the role of prefrontal cortex in working memory” was accepted to the FENS forum in July 2016 in Copenhagen. With co-organizers Albert Compte, M. Victoria Puig, and Chengyu Li.
The lab's first grant! Kartik (along with co-investigator Clay Curtis) received an NYU Research Enhancement Fund award to study working memory and spatial procesing.
