Research Interests

1. The pathophysiology of traumatic brain injury (TBI): mechanisms of damage and repair of motor and cognitive deficits.

  • The role of neuroinflammation in the post-injury secondary damage
  • The role of the NMDA receptors in the cognitive decline after TBI
  • Mechanisms for the repair of learning and memory deficits after TBI

2. The role of cannabinoids in the recovery of motor and cognitive functions after traumatic brain injury (TBI)

  • Effect of cannabinoids (synthetic, plant- or brain- derived) on the recovery of function and on neurogenesis after TBI.
  • Mechanism of action of endocannabinoids as neuroprotective and neuroregenerative molecules.
