The laboratory is located at the Section of Physiology and Psychology, on the first floor of the Biological Institutes (block A). It occupies an area of about 40 square meters and allows to perform electrophysiological recordings of cells in cultures and on slices of tissue. In addition, it has everything needed to perform immunofluorescence and molecular biology.
