Universidad Pablo de Olavide
The UPO group has a well-recognised expertise in the neuroscience foundations of higher motor and cognitive functions as learning and memory processes. They will be concentrated in the development of animal tests to provide inputs for modelling and human experiments.
Specifically, the will compare in the same behaving animals the different effects of extra-cranial versus intracranial chronic stimulating procedures. Our group has a complete Animal House including 14 laboratories to carry out the proposed experiments. Large equipment facilities include a complete set-up for in vivo electrophysiological recordings in rabbits, a separate set-up for classical conditioning of eyelid responses, and an open field also for rabbits.
