Chaque année au mois de mars, la Société des Neurosciences coordonne la Semaine du Cerveau. En France, cette manifestation internationale est organisée simultanément dans plus de 30 villes et a pour but de sensibiliser le grand public à l’importance de la recherche sur le cerveau.

La Semaine du Cerveau 2018

In 2018, the ENP will continue to support the "ENP-Université Paris Descartes-ENS spring course on Optical Imaging and Electrophysiological Recording in Neuroscience", 14th-25th may 2018, Paris Descartes University and ENS.


International ENP Spring School 2018

The ENP Days 2018 will be held at the Centre des Congrès de l'Aube at Troyes   

from Wednesday, September 19 - 1.30 pm to Friday, September 21 - 5.00 pm. 

The ENP Annual Retreat is for members and guests only.

Registration is mandatory.

ENP Days 2018

Are you a scientist who wants to consolidate your independence by establishing a research team and continuing to develop a success career in Europe? The ERC Consolidator Grant could be for you. You can also apply if you have recently created an independent, excellent research team and want to strengthen it.

You will find all needed information on ERC website:

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 22 centers of the Paris region.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: TEMPORALLY PRECISE SINGLE-CELL-RESOLUTION OPTOGENETICS

Team leader Valentina Emiliani and coll in collaboration with Ed Boyden at MIT (Cambridge, USA) now devised a way to control single-neuron by optogenetics. Authors using a light-sensitive opsine protein targeted to neuronal bodies (soma-targeted) developed by Ed Boyden and taking advantage of the patterned 2-photon holographic illumination for optogenetics applications developed by the highly skilled expertise of the Emiliani’s team show exquisite figures and recordings of single synaptic response to stimulation paving therefore the way for a future clear neuronal connectivity map.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: SEROTONIN 2B RECEPTORS IN MESOACCUMBENS DOPAMINE PATHWAY REGULATE  COCAINE RESPONSES

ENP team leader Luc Maroteaux and coll determine to unravel links between serotonin and dopamine systems in development and pathophysiological situations. Cocaïne, a powerfully addictive stimulant drug because of  the changes it creates in the brain after repeated use, is known to increase levels of the brain dopamine.

Research Highlight: Formation and suppression of acoustic memories during human sleep

Listeners may learn novel sensory informations during sleep but the question of how sleep stages and their associated rhythms modulate environmental learning remains unanswered. ENP team leader Sid Kouider and his coll. now demonstrate that the formation and suppression of new memories can take place during sleep.
