Rosa Laboratory

Structure, function and plasticity of the cerebral cortex

Welcome to the Rosa Lab

Our laboratory investigates the information flow between areas of the cerebral cortex, and how the brain reorganises following injury to this system.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Neuroscience Program, and the Department of Physiology. Professor Rosa is also Deputy Director and Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function.

Our research

Using a variety of neuroanatomical, electrophysiological, and imaging techniques, we are trying to understand the principles of organisation of the cerebral cortex in complex brains, like those of human and non-human primates. The cortex is formed by a vast network of cells that exchange information via synaptic connections. To help decipher this network, we develop computational data analysis techniques based on artificial intelligence.

I am one of the lead researchers in the Marmoset Brain Connectivity Atlas, an international project aimed at producing the first open-access resource for analysis of connections between brain areas in a primate:
