Neuropsychopharmacology

Focusing on psychoneurobiology, activities of the group include:

  • research on the molecular underpinnings of gonadal hormones´influence on women’s behaviour and mental health; by employing genetic, endocrine, pharmacological, neurophysiological and neuroimaging measures, we aim to characterize diagnosis- and treatment-related biomarkers of sex-specific disorders.
     
  • research on the effects of early-life stress and alcohol exposure on brain and behaviour; (epi)gene-environment interactions are investigated in rodents as well as human population-based samples, with special focus on adolescence, to identify biomarkers of vulnerability to alcohol use and misuse.
