My lab has initiated the Mouse Brain Architecture Project, in which we are systematically generating a brain-wide connectivity map at a resolution that highlights the connections between different brain regions. I also undertake theoretical work at the interface between physics, engineering and biology, bringing methods from statistical physics to bear on questions about the workings of complex biological networks.

Dr. Mriganka Sur is the Paul E. and Lilah Newton Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Simons Center for the Social Brain at MIT, which he founded after 15 years as head of the MIT Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. Dr. Sur studies the organization, development and plasticity of the cerebral cortex of the brain using experimental and theoretical approaches. He has discovered fundamental principles by which networks of the cerebral cortex are wired during development and change dynamically during learning.
