The goal of the research team is to analyze the roles played by environmental and genetic factors, as well as the interactions between these components, in the etiology and treatment of psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety and addiction. The main objective of the team is to identify cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these pathologies which are associated with major dysfunctions of the monoamine and HPA systems and characterized by cellular plasticity alterations of different brain areas and in particular the hippocampus.

Our research efforts have contributed to a better identification of relevant phenotype for genetic studies, particularly on the field of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, suicide, autism, OCD and pharmaco-genetic studies. Being principal investigator of national and international groups, she has been able to produce prominent findings such as identification in autism of the first mutations in neuroligins (NLGN-3 and NLGN-4).
