Main projects in the lab include:

  1. Presynaptic monoamine transportes and the vesicular monoamine transporter as targets for neuropsychiatric drugs.
  2. Anxiolytic effects of new herbal treatment: mice models of anxiety and biochemical studies.
  3. Quaternary serotonin-reuptake inhibitors as novel anti-platelet drugs.
  4. Methylphenidate (Ritalin): abuse potential and long-term effects.
