Hi! This is the page of Dr Caio Maximino, a lecturer and neuroscience researcher from Brazil. I research the evolutionary history of brain and behavior, using a combined approach of evolutionary biology, behavioral neuroscience, behavioral pharmacology, and neurochemistry to try to understand the evolutionary patterns and processes that generated some behavioral functions which are present in extant vertebrates; my main interest is in emotional behavior, with an application in biological psychiatry.

I teach physiology, anatomy and histology at Universidade Federal do Sul e Sudeste do Pará; some of my class slides can be found on the side column. This site will also serve this educational purpose by featuring blog posts on neuroscience and its interfaces. For more information on my research lines, as well as links for some of my articles, go to Research and publications. You can contact me on the form below!
