Corina O. Bondi0000-0002-5733-4912
Corina O. Bondi earned her B.S. degree in neuroscience and physics from Muskingum University in 2003. She then received her Ph.D. degree in pharmacology with a focus in neuroscience in 2009 from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, TX, USA. Her dissertation studies focused on the brain noradrenergic modulatory role in chronic stress-induced cognitive dysfunction in medial prefrontal cortex, as well as in mechanisms underlying chronic antidepressant drug effects. During a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience at University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Bondi conducted in vivo electrophysiology and pharmacology experiments aimed at cortical neural encoding of GABAergic neurotransmission, as well as molecular and behavioral studies to characterize the impact of polyunsaturated fatty acids on rodent behavior and cognition. Currently in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research at University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Bondi’s main research interests include characterizing complex cognitive processing deficits in experimental models of traumatic brain injury, as well as viable treatment and rehabilitative strategies such as pharmacotherapies or environmental enrichment. During the past years, she served on various committee and council positions with the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society. Dr. Bondi is also a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, National Neurotrauma Society, and Society for Neuroscience.
