The central nervous system (CNS) of vertebrates is a complex arrangement of neurons and glial cells that underlie brain physiology and animal behavior. These cells are set-up in defined numbers at specific locations from neural progenitors or Neural...
 Understanding how information is processed within neuronal networks requires knowledge of how neurons use cellular and molecular mechanisms to transform information communicated by synapses. Defects in the communication between synapses are...

Our research aims to investigate at multiple levels the molecular mechanisms and neuronal circuits underlying executive function and nicotine reinforcement in a simple animal model. We use mouse models because it lends itself to a large variety of...
Christine PETIT
Our research projects have two tightly linked goals: (i) to decipher the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie the development of the auditory system, the way it processes acoustic signals (mechanotransduction (MET), and the synaptic...
General theme: Epigenetic regulation of neuronal networks and memory Central topic: Adult plasticity of neuronal networksSystem model: The olfactory bulb for its adult neurogenesis Research topics: - Functional consequences of adult neurogenesis-...
