The main goal of NICO research center is to study the fundamental biological mechanisms of nervous system function, whose knowledge is essential for the development of innovative therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric disorders.
NICO is an interdepartmental institute of Turin University devoted to Neuroscience. We focus in developing a multidisciplinary approach that combines the skills and expertise of our faculty, with the goal of integrating basic research and its clinical applications.
European Journal of Neuroscience
presented a collection of pioneering and original research and reviews articles in the fields of molecular, cellular, systems, behavioural and cognitive neurosciences free to access until the end of 2018. A pubblication by
Prof. Stefano Geuna's Research Group
is one of 10 written by researchers in Italy.
Since 2001, this meeting represented an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic. We will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including behavior, epigenetics, genomic and non-genomic actions, the vitamin D, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, and the interference among endocrine disruptors and steroid signaling.
