My research focuses on the neurobiology of alcoholism with an especial emphasis on the role of glial cells in the vulnerability and maintenanace of alcohol dependence. This research uses animal models of alcohol preference and human postmortem tissue and applies immunohistochemical, biochemical and pharmacological methods to the study of changes in morphology, cell proliferation and the expression of proteins related with crucial functions mediated by glia such as glutamate transport.
