Małgorzata Kossut received Ph.D. degree in neurophysiology from the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Warsaw, Poland, in 1976. She is Professor of neuroscience and Head of Laboratory of Neuroplasticity at the same institute. Her research interests concentrate on mechanisms of experience-dependent plasticity of the cerebral cortex, especially neurochemical, electrophysiological, and anatomical correlations of sensory plasticity and learning. The main subject of her investigation was plasticity of adult cerebral cortex, in animals and humans. She did several studies investigating the role of inhibition in experience-dependent plasticity of cerebral cortex.
