Endocannabinoids and neuroadaptation - Giovanni Marsicano  
  Program areas:
Normal and pathological cognition
Vunerability and drug addiction
Neuropsychopharmacology and therapeutics of the deficiencies - transverse axis.
Nutrition and brain

FENS Themes:
Cognition and behaviour / Animal cognition and behaviour ; Neurological and psychiatric conditions / Epilepsy ; Neurological and psychiatric conditions / Neurodegenerative disorders ; Autonomic, limbic and other systems / Regulation of food intake and body weight ; Autonomic, limbic and other systems / Stress and the brain

Scientific expertise:
cannabinoids ; endocannabinoid system ; anxiety ; cognitive et behavioural analysis of learning and memory processes ; extinction of fear ; epilepsy ; degenerative disease ; food intake

Technical expertise:
transgenic mice ; passive or active avoidance ; fear conditioning ; conditional knock-out ; conditional overexpression ; molecular biology ; immunohistochemistry ; in situ hybridization ; cellular neurobiology ; cellular imaging

endocannabinoid system ; conditional mutagenesis ; anxiety ; energy balance
Research interests: Our research is directed towards understanding the molecular basis of behavioural adaptation. In particular, we are interested in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which regulates many important brain fonctions such as anxiety, food intake and energy balance.
