The Psychobiology Program
The psychobiology department:
In the psychobiology department we combine research aspects such as behavioral, physiological, molecular and cellular, to understand how the brain works, and what are the neurobiological properties that are responsible for normal behaviors, as well as abnormal behaviors associated with psychiatric, pathological and neurological conditions. We aim to improve our understanding of these properties, in search for better diagnostic tools and treatments.
