Research project: The impact of addictive drugs on cognition; memory and learning and efforts to identify unique analgesics and cognitive enhancers.

The research program comprises of three parts, part A, part B and part C. Part A has a focus on the impact of addictive drugs (anabolic androgenic steroids, opioids, GHB etc.) and hormones (growth hormone etc.) on important biochemical and physiological processes that are associated with drug dependence, behaviour and cognition. The effects of these substances on e.g. learning and memory in animal models are examined. Part B represents a drug discovery project derived from our findings in the tachykinin and renin-angiotensin systems (RAS) and that is aimed at identifying new classes of analgesics with potential use in the treatment of neuropathic pain. Part C has a focus on the discovery of unique cognitive enhancers. The proteolytic processing of neuropeptides to small bioactive peptide fragments and the influences of these fragments on neuropeptide systems in brain structures that are linked to cognition are explored (e.g. hippocampus).
