The research group in Neurobiology of Behaviour (Neurobiologia del Comportament (GReNeC)), led by Olga Valverde, was constituted in 2007 and is a recognized team in the study of the neurobiological substrate of psychiatric disorders and neurotoxicity, including drug addiction, affective disorders, psychiatric co-morbidity and schizophrenia.

The main research lines of the group are:

  • Neurobiology of addictive behaviour (psychostimulants, alcohol and cannabinoids)
  • Neurotoxicity mechanisms
  • Neurobiology of psychiatric disorders (affective disorders and schizophrenia)
  • Psychiatric co-morbidity
  • Acute, chronic and neuropathic pain
  • Spontaneous behaviour and phenotype of murine models
  • Physiopathology of neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders
