Neurochemistry and Neuroimaging Laboratory

Welcome

The Neurochemistry and Neuroimaging Laboratory belongs to the Physiology Department in the University of La Laguna (Tenerife, Spain — view a map). This Group carries out both clinical and basic research into neuroscience.

It is an interdisciplinary Group of Research whose main objetive is to conduct high-quality basic research into questions related to clinical and non clinical neurological problems. The main emphasis of the lab's work has been the use of electrochemistry (voltammety, amperometry), optical techniques (fluorescence and spectroscopic) and brain microdialysis to monitor electrical and chemical activity in the nervous central system.

In long-term, the lab aims to advance towards novel chemical in vivo methods that can rapidly evaluate the action of physiological functions. Ultimately, the lab seeks to understand the regulation of monoamine release and cellular uptake, neurological restoration using electronic methods and new methodologies to study the brain function in pathological and physiological situations.

Information
The following content is not yet translated.

Desde el punto de vista fisiológico, nuestro laboratorio está interesado en estudiar la regulación de la liberación de monoaminas (liberación, recaptación etc) en relación con patrones conductuales complejos, localizados en áreas de integración neuronal.

Otra línea de investigación reciente, derivada de la anterior, es la restauración sensorial y neurológica por métodos electrónicos. En este sentido nuestro grupo, trabaja en la restauración sensorial visual y auditiva, unida al estudio de la función cerebral en situaciones fisiológicas y patológicas (ceguera y sordera).
