Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Disorders


- Tests of effects of chemical substances including pharmaceuticals on neural function

- Design of the experimental protocol

- Motor and behavioural tests in laboratory mice

- Analysis and statistical processing of the data

- Application of stem cells and chemical substances directly into mouse brain


- Laboratory of neurodegenerative disorders is focused on investigation of cerebellar degenerations.

- Functional impacts of cerebellar damage on motor function as well as cognitive and emotional processes are studied in several mouse models of hereditary cerebellar degeneration.

- The next research area is investigation of experimental neurotransplantation and regenerative therapy of neurodegenerative diseases.

- This research includes in vitro and in vivo studies of the effect of trophic and morphogenetic factors on proliferation and development of neural stem cells.
