Neurosciences

• Study of the neuronal circuits and neuroinal plasticity in the regulation of sleep and wake • Study of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in murine models during aging and in different pathologies (epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease) • Study of the molecular mechanisms responsible for the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in different models in vitro e in vivo, and trial of innovative therapeutic treatments (stem cells, exosomes)
