Renata Batista-Brito

Assistant Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Geneticist and systems neuroscientist.

Assistant Professor in Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience, Department of Genetics and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences.  Interested in bridging knowledge from genes to circuits and behaviour. Special focus on the role of inhibition in cortical circuits across postnatal development.

Her lab combines cell-type specific manipulation of neuronal activity, in vivo electrophysiology, in vivo 2-photon imaging, and behaviuoral analysis in order to understand how the postnatal developmental of inhibition shapes sensory representation in the mature brain, and how this process is altered in neurodevelopmental disorders.
