Welcome to the website of the Soreq research team!
Humans possess a surprisingly low number of genes and intensively use pre-mRNA processing to achieve high molecular complexity. This serves needs to sustain normal cognitive and behavioral functions and facilitates responses to altered internal and environmental conditions. Our research combines state-of-the-art molecular neuroscience, behavioral and genetic engineering techniques for studying the molecular mechanisms that underlie these processes. In particular, our research addresses the molecular complexities of mammalian behavioral responses to stress and identifies novel genetic determinants of human stress responses.
