SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

Everything learned from neuroscience allows us to better comprehend human consciousness as a biological phenomenon and all the pathologies derived from the loss of some part of it.
I am interested in understanding the complexity of the brain at various levels, from the molecular and cellular one to the tissue level, finding out how all the cells and extracellular elements interact.
