L'École des Neurosciences de Paris Île-de-France est une fondation  créée en 2007 comme Réseau Thématique de Recherche Avancée (RTRA) sous l'impulsion du Ministère de la Recherche et de l'Enseignement Supérieur.

Le but de cette fondation de coopération scientifique est de promouvoir la recherche et faciliter ses applications avec un intérêt particulier porté à la formation, l’accueil et l’accompagnement scientifique.

Le réseau ENP regroupe plus de 100 équipes de recherche dans le domaine des neurosciences réparties sur 22 centres de recherche.

Research highlight: Divergent evolution shapes brain connectivity in mammals

ENP researcher Alain Chédotal (Institut de la Vision) studies axon guidance mechanisms at the midline of the developing nervous system. The team including ENP student and co-first author Heike Blockus provides evidence for an evolutionary signaling switch of the axon guidance receptor Robo3 in mammals. Unlike other Robo receptors, mammalian Robo3 do not bind Slit ligands.

Research Highlight: Evolution of the Brain

ENP researcher Jean-François Brunet and his team published new findings on the evolutionary origin of somatic and visceral neurons (involved, respectively, in interactions with the outside world and in monitoring the interior milieu). He and his colleagues examined the somatic and visceral sensorimotor circuits in mollusks (gastropods and cephalopods), and observed that they expressed the same specific genes than in vertebrates.

Research Highlight: Molecular control of cocaine’s consequences on the brain and behaviour

The ENP team of Jocelyne Caboche and Peter Vanhoutte (UPMC) have pioneered findings on the interplay of two key neurotransmitter systems that are recruited by drugs of abuse to change behaviour, namely Dopamine and Glutamate. In this study, first-authored by ENP graduate alumni Emma Cahill, they asked whether direct receptor-receptor interactions could contribute to cocaine’s effects. This hypothesis was confirmed.
