Dr. Dubrovsky’s research areas include the behavioural and neurophysiological mechanisms of sequentially organized motor acts, electrophysiological investigations on the functional organization of eye-head coordinated movements, and physiological studies on muscular groups associated with the acquisition of bipedalism: dorsal neck, epaxial and pelvic floor muscles. They also include studies on the applications of the contingent negative variation (CNV) and readiness potential (RP) in psychiatry. His clinical practice consists of consultations in affective and psychotic disorders.
