Rukmini Chariar

Researcher (ASP Thesis Student)

I pursued a major in Psychology and a minor in Biology at Ashoka University. Introductions to topics like gut-brain relationships and neuroplasticity in auditory cognition drew me to enjoy designing experiments. Through my postgraduate diploma thesis, I developed a novel method to study cognitive judgement bias and the effects of Ketamine on Zebrafish (Danio rerio). The translational nature of neuroscience where the behaviour of a Zebrafish could serve as a gateway to making certain inferences to human research made me deeply interested in studying the complexities underlying human cognition and behaviour. My long-term research interest is in understanding the neuro-cognitive factors in mental health disorders and working towards developing context-appropriate diagnosis and treatment tools.
