About us

We are a multi-disciplinary group of scientists and clinicians with expertise and interest in stereotactic surgery, in-depth behavioural assessment, and cell/ molecular/ histological analysis of models of diseases affecting the central nervous system. Our work – past, present, future - can be described as investigating multi-modal neuromodulation in neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders, and follows three main axes:

  • Neuromodulation via cell therapy

  • Neuromodulation based on deep brain stimulation in models of Parkinson Desease (PD) and depression

  • Neuromodulation via optogenic methods

Details on our research

What happens in Parkinson's disease?

In Parkinson's patients dopamine neurons are lost in the nigrostriatal system. Simplified, this means that dopamine no longer gives the orders of the nervous system to the muscles.
