Neel Agarwal

Neuroscience Technician

Neel is a systems neuroscientist with experience studying how neuronal activity underlies perception. He received a BSc in Neuroscience (Cell and Molecular Stream) from McGill University. During his undergraduate research, he joined Prof. Erik Cook’s lab to investigate early stages of visual processing optogenetically and explore the implications of pupil activity in rodent recordings. While in the El-Shamayleh lab, Neel is conducting visual neuroscience experiments and developing experimental software (MWorks & Matlab). He plans to assist in the electrophysiological investigation of primate cortical circuitry. Neel joined the lab in August 2022.
