Name and surname : Paola Haeger.

Titles:

          • Doctor in Neurobiology.

Current charges:

          • Researcher at the Neurobiology of Behavior and Addiction Laboratory.

Institution / Affiliation: Behavior and Addiction Neurobiology Laboratory. School of Medicine. Northern Catholic University. .

City-Country : Coquimbo, Chile.

My laboratory is interested in understanding the brain mechanisms involved in vulnerability to altered mental health. We are particularly interested in detecting developmental periods and environmental conditions that generate greater susceptibility to developing cognitive deficiencies, drug addiction or other psychiatric illnesses. This is how we have studied how stress, early drinking, social isolation, exposure to heavy metals, and environmental pollutants can trigger abnormal behaviors in adult individuals. Along with increasing knowledge, the development of educational and prevention tools, we are identifying development windows and therapeutic molecular targets to prevent and even reverse these altered behaviors using animal models.
