Endocannabinoid research

The neurocomputational aspects of endocannabinoid-based neuroprotection has emerged as a mature research area. My current research aim to investigate experimental methods for exploiting the endocannabinoid levels for neuroprotection purpose. In particular, the study of retrograde signaling (anandamide trafficking) can be helpful to understand how on-demand anandamide mobilization fine-tune dopamine receptors availability, density, and connectivity in the PFC, striatum, and microglia.

Furthermore, the study of endocannabinoid-mediated synaptic hypercomputation is under investigation. In specific, the role and mecanism of intracellular CB1 activation in the regulation of synchronized gamma-band oscillations (neuronal phase coherence?) by dopamine is poorly documented.
