Le 22 avril prochain, les citoyens du monde entier sont appelés à participer à une grande marche pour les sciences.

Cette initiative a été lancée par des scientifiques américains pour faire face à "de nouvelles politiques (qui) menacent d’entraver davantage la capacité des chercheurs de mener à bien leurs recherches et de diffuser leurs résultats". L'Inserm, le CNRS, l'Inra, l'Inria, le CEA et la Coordination des université de recherche intensives soutiennent cette initiative.

Marche pour la Science

The Optical  Imaging  and  Electrophysiological  Methods  in  Neuroscience  

is  a  10  day  residential  course  of  lectures, demonstrations  and  practical  work  in  electrophysiology  and  microscopy applied  to  neurophysiology.  It  was  initiated  by  the  ENP  in  2009.

ENP-Université Paris Descartes-ENS course on Optical Imaging and Electrophysiological Recording in Neuroscience

This satellite meeting of the ISN/ESN joint meeting will focus on recent developments in the field of CNS and PNS myelin biology. The satellite will be held immediately following the ISN/ESN joint meeting in Paris will include 4 days of talks, with 2 plenary lectures, 9 symposia sessions that includes a young investigator session, and a poster session.

 ISN Satellite Meeting on Myelin Biology

The next ENP Days will be held in Paris at the Collège des Bernardins  

from Wednesday March 22nd 5pm to Friday March 24th 6pm 2017


Please register on the dedicated website before February 25th



The ENP Annual Retreat is for members and guests only.

Registration is mandatory.

The École des Neurosciences de Paris Île-de-France (ENP) is a Foundation created in 2007 at the instigation of the French Ministry of Research as a Thematic Network for Advanced Research (RTRA in French).

This scientific foundation aims to promote research and to facilitate its applications.

The ENP network brings together more than 100 neuroscience research teams, located in 23 centers of the Paris region.

Research Highlight: Molecular signatures of neural connectivity in the olfactory cortex

In the mouse, the piriform olfactory cortex is known to transmit odor information to other brain areas (involved in cognition, context, or behavior) but how the specificity of efferent cortical connectivity is organized at the cellular level remains unknown.

Research Highlight: Persistent Structural Plasticity Optimizes Sensory  Information Processing in the Olfactory Bulb

The olfactory bulb (OB) has highly dynamic structural plasticity in adult-born synapses, yet the OB network supports stable perceptual function.

Research Highlight: Hippocampo-cortical coupling mediates memory consolidation during sleep

Memory consolidation is thought to be mediated by a dialog between the hippocampus and the neortex during sleep, but direct experimental evidence has remained elusive. ENP leader Michaël Zugaro and coll. now report for the first time that temporary memory traces can be consolidated in rats by boosting the functional oscillatory coupling between hippocampal sharp wave-ripples, cortical delta waves and thalamo-cortical spindles during sleep.
