Laboratory research projects focused on specific neural networks in the brain and their role in neurological disorders. Special attention was devoted to the limbic system and the basal ganglia, with respect to glutamate and GABA-mediated influences on epileptic seizures and memory. Neural substrates of Parkinsonism and cocaine-induced hyperkinesias were also studied.
