Dr. Gerardo Piroli
In addition to electrophysiology, my research also consisted of some immunological techniques to better understand how the brain changes because of seizures and epilepsy. For this, I worked with Dr. Gerardo Piroli also at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Department of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Neuroscience.
His mentorship taught me to be precise while doing these experiments and the ways in which results from these techniques can be interpreted. We bonded over our love of our respective languages (Spanish for him, Hindi and Gujarati for me), his love for the Blues and Blues-inspired music, and ZZ Top.
My name is Sloka. I am a neuroscientist and Bharatanatyam dancer; you can find more about me here.
