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.
