L’Institut Thématique Multi-Organismes (Aviesan) Neurosciences, Sciences Cognitives, Neurologie, Psychiatrie et le Bureau des Formations Scientifiques et de Soutien à la Recherche (BFSSR) organisent une Journée Recherche et Santé (JRS) intitulée

Immuno-psychiatrie : des outils innovants pour mieux comprendre, diagnostiquer et traiter les troubles psychiatriques

Le jeudi 5 octobre 2017 à l’Académie Nationale de Médecine

Journée Immuno-psychiatrie

ISN satellite meeting on immune cells and the CNS seeks to gather scientists interested in the impact of immune cells during development of the CNS and over the course of neurological diseases. The involvement of immune cells is at the source of fine developmental modeling of the brain and the trigger of the autoimmune disease Multiple Sclerosis but they also actively contribute to the evolution of chronic neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.

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: Three-dimensional spatiotemporal focusing of holographic patterns

ENP group leader Valentina Emiliani and coll. now demonstrate  the experimental achievement of a unique optical system that would enable in combination with other imaging  or functional approaches to photactivate simultaneously cellular- and/or sub-structures in vivo, in several planes in depth .

Research Highlight: Reallocation of Olfactory Cajal-Retzius Cells Shapes Neocortex Architecture

Our understanding of the mechanisms involved in the development of upper cortical association layers is limited. ENP team leader Sonia Garel and colleagues now show that, in mice, the density of a population of early-born transient glutamatergic neurons known as Cajal–Retzius cells (CRCs) in the Marginal Zone is essential to the proper development of the circuitery during necortical growth.

Research Highlight: Astrocytes gate Hebbian synaptic plasticity in the striatum

Astrocytes control the strength and timing of synaptic inputs by fast glutamate uptake via EAAT2 glutamate transporter. However, whether astrocytes contribute to the fine temporal detection of incoming inputs important for plasticity expression is yet unknown. Spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) is a synaptic Hebbian learning rule allowing for associative storage of relevant firing patterns. Temporal coding via STDP in the striatum may be essential for the association of sensory and motor events during procedural learning.
