We are interested in the study of the involvement of the cannabinoid system (e.g., marijuana) in stress, trauma and memory. By employing multidisciplinary approaches which include behavioral, pharmacological, electrophysiological, and molecular techniques we study the processes underlying the role of cannabinoids in modulating normal and pathological memory in rat models.
Currently, we are focused on studying the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and other stress-related disorders.
