Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
My research interests are Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Neurosciences, Attachment, stress and sex-differences. I am very interested in understanding the neural pathways that contribute to the patophysiology in anxiety and depressive disorders. Finally, it is a professional interest to contribute to the development of new treatment interventions for childhood neglect and abuse sufferers from a biopsychosocial standpoint.
The overall objective of my current project is to assess the effects of early and late interventions in the behavioral and molecular levels of anxiety and depressive-like behaviors after an early stressor. Moreover, we will determine sex-differences in these parameters since we use male and female rats in our studies.
