We are looking for a Postdoctoral Scholar to join our team. Please send your CV and contact details to: suthanalab@mednet.ucla.edu. Thank you!

About the Lab

The Suthana Lab focuses on the development of invasive and non-invasive neuroimaging and neuromodulation methodologies in humans to understand and restore cognitive functions such as learning and memory. Methods used include intracranial electrical stimulation and recordings of single-unit and oscillatory activity in patients with implanted electrodes. The lab also utilizes non-invasive methods such as TMS, scalp EEG and fMRI to characterize and improve cognitive functions.

Meet the Principal Investigator

Nanthia Suthana, PhD

Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, Bioengineering and Psychology at UCLA. Dr. Suthana has a diverse methodological background with expertise in human neuroimaging techniques such a fMRI, single neuron and LFP electrophysiology, and deep brain stimulation. She completed her graduate training in the UCLA Neuroscience Ph.D. program and postdoctoral training in the Department of Neurosurgery prior to joining faculty.

Dr. Suthana’s research focuses on the development of invasive and non-invasive methodologies that aim to understand and restore learning and memory functions in humans. Her laboratory includes members with diverse backgrounds in neuroscience, bioengineering, psychology, computer science, and physics and has ongoing collaborations with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to develop a miniaturized wireless neuroprosthetic device for treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders.

Dr. Suthana’s research has been published in journals such as Nature, New England Journal of Medicine, and Neuron. Her program was recently awarded an NIH Brain Initiative UO1 grant, a McKnight Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Award, and a Keck Junior Faculty Award. She is currently the Ruth and Raymond Stotter Chair in Neurosurgery, serves as the Associate Director of the Neuromodulation Division at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience, and co-directs the UCLA T32 Training program in Translational Neurotechnology. In 2019, she was awarded a postdoctoral mentoring award and continues to contribute to efforts aimed at increasing diversity, and educational and career opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities in her role as the Associate Director of Neuroscience outreach for the Brain Research Institute at UCLA.
