Major Research Interests

  • To elucidate brain structures, circuits, pathways and mechanisms that underlie normal and pathological behavior.
  • To develop, validate and investigatie animal models to detect abnormal cognitive, motor and emotional expressions of brain pathology.
  • To investigatie central nervous and behavioral phenomena associated with stress and depression and to provide service platforms to study Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis.
