The research carried out in this department analyzes the neurobiological mechanisms participating in the control of behavior and in complex cerebral processes pertaining to animals and humans.

The diverse aspects investigated relate to the expression of sexual behavior and neurochemical, cellular, and physiological phenomena underlying memory and learning processes, as well as different models of neurodegenerative diseases. By means of electrophysiological and neuroimaging methods, the foundations within the brain of mental activity such as language, emotions, and conscience are studied, as well as neurophysiological mechanisms of time perception in primates.

New diagnostic methods of early brain damage are also being addressed, as well as neurohabilitation techniques and generation of new methods of functional analysis of neuroimages obtained by magnetic resonance.
