Pathophysiology of Addiction, NeuroCentre Magendie, and University of Bordeaux. Bordeaux, France

Véronique Deroche, from theNeuroCentre Magendie and the University of Bordeaux in France, is using experimental psychopathology in rodents to study drug addiction, in particular to cocaine, as well as obesity, post-traumatic stress, and deficits associated with aging. The aim is to identify therapeutic targets relevant in creating technological tools to explore the mechanisms of these psychopathologies.

She has been invited by Rafael Maldonado (UPF).
