We study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of programmed death in the neurons that are controlled by the neurotrophic factors. Our main experimental models are the dissociated or organotypic cultures of the neurons, treated with or deprived of the neurotrophic factors, and transfected with techniques such as direct microinjection, viral transfection etc.
