EBRI aims at implementing diverse approaches to the study of neuroscience. Scientists with distinct backgrounds will use techniques such as molecular and cell biology, genetics, biophysics, bioinformatics, genomics and proteomics, electrophysiology and nanotechnology.

Main research activities involve the study of :

  • - Neurotrophic Factors and Neurodegenerative Diseases
  • - mRNA metabolism in the nervous system
  • - Pharmacology of Synaptic Plasticity
  • - Endocannabinoid System and Central Mechanism of Neuropathic Pain
  • - Neural Stem Cells and Neurogenesis
  • - Nerve Growth Factor
  • - Cortical Microcircuits
  • - Mechanisms of Neuronal and Synaptic Plasticity

The institute’s infrastructure provides scientists with a high technology platform:

  • - Genomics Facility
  • - Optical Imaging Facility
  • - Primary Neuronal Cell Culture
