Behavior and Physiological Signal
The goal of my research is the combination of multiorgan analysis to model aspects of
neurophychiatric disorders in mice to be potentially translated in patients.
For such an approach, a variety of behavioral tasks along with methods for real time analysis of
physiological signals (ECG) are used with the ultimate aim of proving altered brain-heart interaction in
various neuropathological states.
Translational aspects of animal models
Another aspect of my research is the generation of animal models which more closely mimick the
human disease. In particular, animal models of anxiety and depression are used to deeply investigate
neurochemical, neuroanatomical and neurophysiological changes associated with the pathology.
Additionally, my research interest extends in the identification of novel pharmacological and non-
pharmacological target for such pathologies.
Standardization of behavioral analysis
From 2009 and up to now, I have started the development of novel platform for analysis of behavior to
be distribuited among the scientific community (Software)
