At NBRC and NIMS, India (Undergrad projects)

Dementia and aging.

During my undergraduate degree I was involved in a project of the Alzheimer’s and Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI) – Deccan Chapter. I helped to computerize the semantic battery to be run on subjects for memory assessments under the supervision of Dr. Suvarna Alladi at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences in Hyderabad. As a part of my project, I helped run Neuropsychological assessments (under the supervision of trained neuropscyhologists) on an aging population in a bilingual setting. This was an intense, exciting and rewarding project where I was put on a steep learning curve (coding in JAVA) and working with patients hands on was an amazing experience.

Hypometric saccades.

In my second year of undergrad, I was awarded the prestigious summer research fellowship by the Indian Academy of Sciences and worked with Dr. Aditya Murthy at the National Brain Research Centre. I spent 2 months looking at hypometric saccade parametrics and the compensatory mechanisms evident in the saccades following a hypometric one. My interest in eye movement research has grown during and since I started working on this project.
