Govind Peringod

PhD Candidate

Govind studied Engineering Science at University of Toronto, where he completed an Honors Thesis in electrophysiology looking at the role of Kv1.3 channels in microglia. During his Master’s degree in Neuroscience at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Dr. Grant Gordon, he investigated the spatial and temporal properties of cerebral blood flow regulation in awake, behaving mice using two-photon microscopy and vascular chemogenetics. A Eyes High doctoral scholar, Govind joined the lab in 2020; his current research focuses on the role of hippocampal astrocytes in modulating social memory during stress, leveraging computational methods and novel imaging techniques to better understand neural circuits underlying social behaviors.
