This laboratory investigates behavioral reactions of small experimental animals. We design and perform some research projects in the field of  pain, drug dependency, learning and memory, epilepsy , psychological and emotional disorders. We study mechanisms and effects of some chemical and herbal drugs on these fields. We use some special techniques such as,  tail flick , hot plate , formaline test , cpp , kindling( chemical and electrical) , shuttle box.
