Description of Research Projects:
I have worked with cognitive aspects investigating how hormonal deficits might influence the activity of hippocampal signaling pathways related to the control of feeding behavior. Moreover, I performed studies with neurodegenerative animal models of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Now, I am interested in understanding how the interactions of parvalbumin (PV) neurons with neuromodulators may regulate important cognition aspects, investigating how disturbances in this mechanism might be involved in the cognitive impairment in schizophrenia
