The Neuroscience Division of the Pablo de Olavide University is devoted to the study of the neurophysiological basis of animal behavior, from the generation of simple motor responses to the neuronal control of complex behavioral responses. Our experimental approach is both comparative and multidisciplinary, including the use of electrophysiological, histological, behavioral, and modeling techniques. An important aspect of our research activities is the design of specific instrumentation for Neuroscience. A particular attention is paid to the study of adaptive properties of the nervous tissue, mainly those underlying motor and associative learning, as well as those involved in appetitive and cognitive processes.
