Cortical Development and Plasticity  Dynamics • Brain Disorders 

The Sur laboratory studies the development, plasticity and dynamics of circuits in the cerebral cortex of the brain. The laboratory’s goal is to discover fundamental mechanisms of brain wiring and processing, and how they go awry in disorders of brain development.
