Neuroscience Laboratory

This lab was set up as a part of the center of excellence grant.

Neurophysiology Division: This section of the lab has state of the art facilities for video Electroencephalography (EEG), Polysomnography (PSG), Brainstem Evoked Response Audiometry (BERA), Visual Evoked Potential (VEP), Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) and Electromyography (EMG). These services are currently available for diagnostics. Research facilities including EEG/ERP system and Neurofeedback are currently in the process of being set up.

Molecular Biology Division: This section of the lab has state of the art facilities for providing both clinical and research aspects of molecular biology.  Molecular genetic facilities like real time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and Genetic Analyzer. These facilities are currently being used for SERB funded projects in the areas of primary immune deficiency and gynecological malignancies.  Diagnostic services are currently being standardized for mucopolysaccharidosis and thalassemia. Additional facilities includes equipments to perform immunoassay (for biochemistry) and cell culture experiments.
