Molecular Cognition Laboratory


We are particularly interested in the molecular and cellular basis of diverse cognitive conditions. Specifically, our goal is to identify molecular and synaptic mechanisms underlying learning and memory processes, cognitive malfunction and cognitive enhancement. The elucidation of these mechanisms facilitates the nomination of new therapeutic targets to a variety of cognitive disorders. Our experience in different scientific disciplines (medicine, animal behavior, electrophysiology, molecular biology, morphology) allows us to use the multidisciplinary approach that is necessary in the modern neuroscience research.
