Dr Siddharth Ramanan

Interests

I am a neuropsychologist and neuroscientist investigating the genesis and neural contributors of heterogeneous cognitive and behavioural symptoms in neurodegenerative dementia syndromes. I completed my PhD in 2020 from The University of Sydney, Australia where I worked with Profs. Muireann Irish and Olivier Piguet at Frontier, a world-leading young-onset dementia research team. Here, my work mainly focused on decomposing heterogeneous symptoms (specifically episodic memory) and associated structural brain correlates in traditionally non-amnesic neurodegenerative disorders.

I then moved to Cambridge to work with Prof. Matthew A. Lambon Ralph. My current postdoctoral work expands my research programme by adopting data-driven, transdiagnostic approaches to chart neurocomputational processes in the brain commonly explaining heterogeneous cognitive and behavioural symptoms across neurodegenerative dementia syndromes. This work, in parallel, uncovers new cognitive roles of brain regions.
