Cannabinoids

Research by the members of the Cannabinoids Focus Group is aimed at elucidating fundamental neural mechanisms underlying behaviors, and how these are modulated by the recently described endogenous cannabinoid system. This signaling network has been involved in natural physiological processes such as pain perception, thermoregulation and motor coordination. The system is also implicated in maladaptive motivated behaviors such as drug addiction and obesity.
