Patricia GASPAR
A number of developmental disorders, in particular in the field of psychiatry and neurology, are thought to result from brain wiring defects. This is the case for mental retardation or autism-spectrum disorders, but also concerns non-cognitive...

The group of F. Francis/L. Goutebroze focuses on three cortical development proteins mutated in malformations or more subtle cortical abnormalities. Cortical malformations are frequent causes of drug-resistant epilepsy and intellectual disability....
Our goal is to identify signaling mechanisms that underlie brain plasticity leading to long-lasting behavioral alterations. Our major model of study is the striatum that plays a crucial role in the control of movements, motivated behaviors,...
Cortical GABAergic interneurons play a critical role in shaping the activity of neuronal ensembles. In particular, in the hippocampus, GABA signaling is involved in the maintenance of rhythmic population activities associated with various behavioral...
Luc MAROTEAUX
Our present work started from our observation that serotonin tone can be controlled by a feed-forward mechanism via 5-HT2B receptors. Recent independent investigations and our unpublished results indicate that this same serotonergic receptor may...
We study neurodevelopmental disorders with the ultimate aim to identify key molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in establishing neuronal circuits underlying social cognition and behavior. We currently focus on the study of transcription...
