Claire WYART
Sensory systems transduce fluctuations in the physical world into patterns of action potentials which are integrated to control motor outputs. Locomotion relies on genetically determined circuits constituted by spinal interneurons and capable of...
Etienne HIRSCH
Our project is driven by two major complementary objectives: 1) to characterize the mechanisms involved in the progression of nerve cell death in neurodegenerative disorders and especially Parkinson’s disease (PD); 2) to identify functional...
One aspect of our research is the study of oligodendroglial cell development in the embryonic brain, especially the specification and migration of oligodendrocyte precursors (OPs). In addition, since the development of the central nervous system...
Marie VIDAILHET
Our main research topic is the physiological analysis of both subcortical and cortical brain structures involved in the control of normal and abnormal movements. Dystonia, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome (GTS) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) will be...
Stéphane HAIK
We have interest in dementia characterized by the accumulation of amyloid proteins and neurodegeneration.Modulation of A-beta secretion by cholesterol may have therapeutic implications. We are studying the lipid content of senile plaques using mass...
We are a group with tight scientific links, interest and expertise, that focus on human diseases as natural conditions unraveling yet unknown biological mechanisms. We study pure monogenic diseases (neuromuscular excitability disorders) as well as...
Why do we do what we do? We are largely unaware of our own motives. Our team seeks to understand how motivation works, in both the normal and pathological brain. We define motivation as a set of processes that assign values to potential situations...
The team is based on two PIs, Anne Baron-Van Evercooren and Brahim Nait Oumesmar, who share a common interest in understanding how remyelination proceeds and how it can be promoted with a strong emphasis on remyelinating cells and animal models of...
Alexis BRICE
The research is focused on molecular bases and physiopathology of different neurodegenerative disorders. The methods used are mapping and identification of susceptibility factors and genes responsible for these disorders (Parkinson's and Alzheimer's...
O Epilepsy consists of a wide range of syndromes, all associated with abnormal synchronous neuronal firing in one or more brain regions. It is the most common neurological disorder, affecting about 1% of the population. Great progress has been made...
Le CENIR a pu commencer ses activités de recherche en neuro-imagerie grâce à la coopération financière de grandes institutions publiques et de prestigieux partenaires privés. L'ENP a cofinancé l'antenne tête 32 canaux et 100% de leur système...
Luc MALLET
The scientific core of our research program is to study the exact nature of the processing that the basal ganglia (BG) apply to cortical information with three perspectives: 1) improve our fundamental knowledge of the cerebral mechanisms of...
Alberto BACCI
In the cerebral cortex the constant computation of incoming sensory information is dynamically integrated to provide a coherent representation of the world and generate highly sophisticated cognitive functions. Cortical circuits are made of...
Nathalie GEORGE
The SAN team gathers together three PIs with complementary expertise in affective neuroscience, social neuroscience, and psychiatry. Our project focuses on the functional neuroanatomy of the emotional brain. We study the brain systems of emotion...
Lionel NACCACHE
The PICNIC lab is devoted to the study of cognitive functions with an exclusive or prevalent development in humans, namely language and conscious cognition. The study of brain-damaged patients occupies a central position in our methodological...
Our second aim is to assess the crucial question whether different ALS genes lead to motor neuron death and deleteriousmicroglia/macrophage responses by gain or loss of function mechanisms. A major focus will be on newly discovered and theremaining...
Richard LEVY
The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is a major challenge in Neurosciences. This brain region controls behavior adaptation and highercognitive functions that are needed for complex social interaction, abstract thinking, reasoning, planning or creativity....
Bassem HASSAN
Our lab is interested in how a brain develops and how it is protected from disorders, like intellectual disability and neurodegeneration.Although the emphasis in the media and, even the scientific literature tends to be on brain disease, it is worth...
