Neurodevelopmental disorders

Main field of research: 

Neurological and psychiatric diseases

Keywords: 

autism
speech & language
genes & cognition
social brain

ENP label:

Research Center / Institute: 

IFM - Institut du Fer à Moulin

Research Unit Code: 

UMR 839

We study neurodevelopmental disorders with the ultimate aim to identify key molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in establishing neuronal circuits underlying social cognition and behavior. We currently focus on the study of transcription factors whose mutations lead to speech and language disorder and to microcephaly and intellectual disability.

Research Unit Code: 

U1000

Over the past 4 years, we have been studying psychiatric disorders and addictions that are prevalent and have a high social cost. We use magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography to capture brain images in severely impaired patients and to assess the effects of treatment on brain function. We are based in the Service Hospitalier Frédéric Joliot (SHFJ), Orsay. We also collaborate with a network of psychiatrists within the Paris area and collaborate on large data sets with North Europe research teams.
