Research Areas


Area Director: Juan Fortea

This area covers research in neurological, neurodevelopmental and mental disorders. Among these are diseases such as stroke, neuromuscular conditions, neurodegenerative diseases, schizophrenia, depression or chronic pain. A large variety of neuroscience techniques are used in the area. Some groups work on the genetic bases of neurological diseases, the identification of biomarkers, brain imaging, neurosurgical methods, deep-brain stimulation or omics sciences, while other groups work with models of pain, in the biology of synapses or in neuropharmacology. Large population cohorts of patients with clinical follow-ups are analysed in this area.
