Dr. Fernando Calahorro is Senior Research Fellow within Biological Sciences at University of Southampton. As molecular neurobiologist the interests of Dr. Calahorro are in fundamental aspects of neuronal signalling and the molecular regulation of behaviour, using genetic models of synaptic dysfunction and a range of techniques including behavioural analysis, molecular genetics, neurochemistry and electrophysiology.

The exciting adventure of addressing cutting edge questions in neurobiology to dissect neuronal circuits.

Research interests

My research interests are in fundamental aspects of neuronal signalling and the molecular regulation of behaviour, using genetic models of synaptic dysfunction, such as C. elegans, and a range of techniques including behavioural analysis, molecular genetics, neurochemistry and electrophysiology. In this line my aspiration as an academic is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying neuro-atypical behaviours.

I am specifically interested in animal behavioural plasticity leading me to focus on synaptic determinants that appear essential to integrate sensory input to produce appropriate behavioural output and which are disrupted some neurodevelopmental disorders. This knowledge can be applied in translating understanding in basic neurobiology to drug regulation, as well as in basic neurobiology to chemical regulation of animal and plant parasites.
