IZAQUE DE SOUSA MACIEL
Postdoctoral researcher in Katja Kanninen group at the A I Virtanen Institute for Molecular Sciences
Experienced scientist with more than eight years of experience in preclinical studies in Pharmacology and Neuroscience.
My research interests are largely direct to understanding the impact of early life stress and drug abuse exposure during the brain development and its impact on juvenile, adolescent, and adult brain. I am particularly interested in learning how the stress can affect the glial cells and how this modulates the neural circuitry associated with decision-making, drug abuse and mood disorders.
