I work in the field of behavioural genetics and molecular cognition. My research final aim is to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying learning and memory and thus how the brain stores, retrieves and modifies information. I exploit environmental enrichment (EE), which is known to provide the mammal brain with a "cognitive reserve", in pre-clinical models in order to shed light on the complex molecular machinery involved in environment adaptation and enhanced cognition.
