Dr. Fernando Gomez-Pinilla is Professor of Physiological Science. His research goal is to investigate the molecular mechanisms of neuronal adaptation to insult, disease, and environmental factors by focusing on the action of neurotrophic factors as major effectors of neuronal growth and survival, synaptic function, ultimately resulting in behavioral manifestations. His laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach ranging from gene expression to behavioral techniques, and involving the brain and spinal cord of animals and humans. His work is widely published, including elite publications such as 'Nature' magazine.
