Neural System Disease Models
Our Pharmacodynamics Department is proud of its multiple nervous system models based on anti-depressants, anti-Alzheimer's drugs, sedative-hypnotic and anti-anxiety drugs, analgesics, anti-convulsants, anti-Parkinson's drugs, and anti-schizophrenia drugs. Those models can effectively evaluate Type-1 innovative drugs at the molecular and cellular level, as well as ex vivo, and in vivo. The Department’s advanced Cognition Wall Discrimination learning ensures uninterrupted tracking to determine changes in memory function in double transgenic mice during tearly-stage Alzheimer's disease, and eliminates the disadvantages of the Morris water maze (MWM) in stress interference and short-time tests.
