Graziano Pinna  

Research Interest:

Dr. Pinna's research in neuropharmacology/neuroendocrinology has focused on:
  • Mechanism of action of antidepressant, anxiolytic, and antiaggressive drugs in several mouse models of affective/cognitive disorders, including aggressive behavior, schizophrenia, and PTSD
  • Developing new therapies for PTSD and anxiety disorders
  • Epigenetic mechanisms and psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia
  • Understanding the structure and function of neural circuits that mediate cognitive and affective processes in a PTSD mouse model
  • Physiological role of neurosteroid allopregnanolone on GABAA receptor function
  • Pharmacology of several GABAA receptor positive modulators
  • Mechanisms that lead to anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS)-induced behavioral deficits and the study of molecules that reverse the behavioral and neurochemical dysfunction induced by AAS treatment
  • Function of GABAA receptors in mouse models of anxiolytic drug tolerance and dependence
  • Effects of several class of antidepressants on the production and function of thyroid hormones

Philip L Johnson  

Research Interest:

Dr. Philip L Johnson Research interests is to integrate preclinical and clinical research to investigate the mechanisms of centrally regulated anxiety and panic-associated behavior that coincides with cardio-respiratory and thermoregulatory activity, and determine how these systems contribute to: 1) neuropsychiatric disorders such as panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); 2) respiratory disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD 1); and 3) menopausal symptoms (e.g., hot flashes and anxiety) from loss of estrogen tone. To accomplish this I employ a variety of techniques such as: development and use of animal models (i.e., "hot flashes", panic disorder, PTSD and COPD); site specific brain target and peripheral pharmacological interventions; functional neuroanatomical techniques (tract tracing and ex vivo functional imaging); cell and region specific neuronal lesions, genetically silencing critical proteins using small interfering RNA within these regions
