Welcome to the website for the laboratory of Kumar Narayanan, MD, PhD and his team.
We study the circuitry of cognitive control in the frontal cortex of humans and rodents. These circuits require dopamine and malfunction in human diseases such as Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia. We have recently identified ways to compensate for these deficits and are working hard to translate these findings to human disease.
Our work is funded by NIH, the Carver Trust, MJFF, BBRF, the Nellie Ball Trust, and FOE.
