Aree di ricerca
Il campo di attività di ricerca si è sviluppato nel tempo dall’ambito psicopatologico a quello della biologia psichiatrica (neuropsicoendocrinologia, immunopatologia, genetica) dapprima con riferimento alle psicosi maggiori e più recentemente focalizzando l’attenzione sulle biologia e biologia molecolare dei disturbi d’ansia e dei disturbi dello Spettro Ossessico-Compulsivo. La ricerca psicopatologiaca ha avuto recentemente un approfondimento verso l’indirizzo neuropsicologico e lo studio della manipolazione farmacologica delle funzioni psichiche
