Assistant Professor

Member of:

    Jaspreet Kaur is currently an Assistant Professor in Prof. Maiken Nedergaard's Lab at the Center for Translational Neuromedicine (CTN).

    Dr. Kaur has previously worked in Dr. Rune W. Berg's Lab on how the movement is orchestrated from the brain to the spinal cord in the mammalian system (such as rats) and how spinal population dynamics modulate during locomotion and movement arrest (both natural and induced). The goal has been to understand and unwind the complex motor system using adult rats (in-vivo) and post-mortem human spinal cord as the main model systems. To investigate this, Dr. Kaur has used various strategies such as Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) to target various neuronal subtypes, optogenetics, in vivo electrophysiology, chronic implants such as optical fibers, Neuropixel and Neuronexus probes in the rat spinal cord, and the brain, immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization, tissue clearing, western blot, genotyping, behaviour.
