A. Alfaro-Rodriguez Ins tuto Nacional de Rehabilitacin Mexico City Mexico
The research carried out by Dr. Alfonso Alfaro-Rodríguez has focused in the study
of the chemistry of the brain. His studies are centered in the search for neuronal
damage mechanisms caused by neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's, brain
injuries, and currently nociception. He has also dabbled in the study of several
antiepileptic and antidepressant drugs over the central nervous system. The role of
monoamines like serotonin and acetylcholine along with several catecholamines at
neuronal and molecular level in the development of neurodegenerative diseases has
been a central topic of his research. The research over the mechanisms of brain
damage by means of different neurotoxic pathways unchained by neurodegenerative
diseases has led him to successfully explore the role of neuroprotective drugs in a
myriad of animal models. With his research he has allowed the assessment of
neuronal damage and the disabilities caused by these diseases. At present he has
centered in the development of novel research protocols over the mechanisms of
pain and the elaboration of diagnostic strategies for the timely diagnostic of it; by
means of the employment of new drugs that could improve quality of life of patients
suffering of chronic pain.
