ABOUT OUR LABORATORY

The important thing is not to stop questioning

Welcome to the Laboratory for Neuroscience of Mental Disorders Elena Pessino. The laboratory is part of the Canis Majoris Foundation´s Reseach Division and is under the direction of Raúl Alelú-Paz, PhD. We are interested in how genetic and environmental factors affect cognitive functions and mental health throughout life. This includes the study of complex disorders such as schizophrenia and OCD. We use both human brain samples and cognitive assessments in clinical trials to achieve these aims. We use a wide range of techniques in our research. Together, these methods provide a broad technical approach to understanding how genetic and environmental influences develop and change across the lifecourse.
