In this episode, Emily chats with Dr. Sriranga Kashyap, a postdoctoral fellow in the BRAIN-TO lab at the Slaight Family Centre for Advanced MRI in Toronto Western Hospital.
The episode follows Sri’s multidisciplinary research guided by his interest in the hippocampus, a region involved in learning and memory. From his Bachelor thesis project analyzing rodent brain slices, to his Masters and PhD projects in which he developed cutting edge methods of non-invasive brain imaging in humans, Sri’s journey took him across India, Europe and North America and required changing his field of study several times. Tune in to find out how he managed handling the uncertainty of change and set-backs, his words of wisdom on learning, and whether he prefers pancakes or waffles?
