Main research topics
Intense pace of life increases stress, aggressive and depressive disorders in humans. Learning neurobiological regulatory mechanisms of behavioral effects in depression, anxiety states and aggression, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, dementias of different origin, and other ischemic conditions, provide opportunities for new therapeutic guidelines in these social diseases, and thus improve the quality of human life. In direction to investigate violations of memory and learning, seizure effects, mechanisms of nociception and analgesia, electrophysiological and neurological changes resulting from cerebral ischemia in stroke, are studied neurobiological mechanisms underlying brain plasticity and neuronal activity in normal and in models of stress, aggression, pain, aging, epilepsy, depression, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease etc. Neuromodulation neurotransmitter interactions and the role of neuropeptides in normal and in experimental models of socially significant diseases are analyzed. The hemispherical asymmetry of behavioral responses in normal and pathological conditions is examined. Traces the role of neurotransmitter systems in various brain structures in the behavioral responses and their lateralization.
