I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Behavioral and Translational Neuroscience group. My project focuses on the study of the neurodevelopmental effects on the offspring caused by the use of antidepressants during pregnancy. The potential long-term consequences are investigated in a social context, in which the response to life events can be determined. As a closer approach to a real-life environment, we use a seminatural environment that allows our model animal, rat, to live in groups and freely interact with their conspecifics, expressing their full repertoire of behaviors.
