The department studies the biological bases and molecular mechanisms of brain aging and brain pathologies, including neurodegenerative, cerebrovascular, and neuroinflammatory diseases. In the same way, it addresses the study of brain circuits and synaptic processes involved in neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia.

The objective of the research is to identify new molecular targets for therapeutic intervention and biomarkers for diagnosis and early detection or response to treatment. To this end, we develop in vitro and in vivo experimental models to understand the mechanisms underlying the loss of brain function and promote functional recovery.
