The brain works in synchrony, or certain networks, to produce certain behaviours (e.g., walking, talking, planning). However, some of these brain networks are dysregulated in individuals with psychiatric illness. While there are current techniques (i.e., functional magnetic resonance imaging, fMRI) to identify these dysregulated brain networks, they are costly, inaccessible, and few and far between. Saurabh Shaw, a 3rd year PhD candidate in the Neuroscience Graduate Program, wants to develop cheaper and more accessible tools in the hopes that it facilitates clinical recovery and treatment. Tune in to episode 91 to learn more about Saurabh's important research, how he builds networks between neuroscience and technology communities, and his attempts to capture the immense beauty in everyday nature!
