Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Elevated anxiety is the hallmark of many psychiatric disorders. This increase in anxiety is believed to be caused by dysfunctional neuronal circuits. I'm interested in dissecting how specific neuronal populations contribute to distinct anxiety-like behaviors and states with the purpose of elucidating novel treatment strategies.
I work on rodent models to study anxiety-like behaviors and states with single-cell precision using genetic targeting strategies.
