Alain CHEDOTAL
Nervous systems are composed of a network of synaptic connections among excitable cells. This network develops as axons extend from presynaptic neurons and grow often long distances to reach their correct postsynaptic partners. Neuronal migration...
Jean LIVET
Information processing in the brain and retina relies on extraordinarily complex and precisely organized assemblies of neuronal and glial cells. The development of these networks raises two great questions: how are their cellular components...
The identification of one of the mechanisms leading to a vision loss in patients suffering from inherited degenerative retinal disorders reveals a novel family of signaling genes involved in the regulation of trophic interactions and response to...
Serge PICAUD
Our lab studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying retinal information processing. For instance, considering contrast enhancement at the photoreceptor terminals, which remains a matter of controversy, we have revisited the GABA...
Angelo ARLEO
The Aging in Vision and Action team is a new research group created in 2014 at the Institute of Vision, Paris. It aims at gaining a better understanding of the perceptive and cognitive disturbances occurring with natural visual ageing in humans....
Romain BRETTE
Our goal is to understand the neural basis of perception, using theoretical and computational models of sensory systems. These models connect the physiological level (properties of neurons) with the behavioral level. Thus theories are tested with...
Xavier NICOL
The mature nervous system is an intricate network in which neurons are connected to specific partners. The choice of these partners is crucial for the correct behavior of the network (meaning the nervous system) and is determined at early stages of...
