Come and meet the ENP in Washington for Neuroscience 2014 booth 3227 and at the Graduate School Fair !

After last year's success of the booth "Neuroscience in France : from Education to Research" the ENP will be at the next SFN meeting with its Partners

Come and meet the ENP in Washington for Neuroscience 2014

Organized by Cendra Agulhon and Hirac Gurden, the conference will begin by a scientific session adressed to a wide audience with 2 french speakers : Carole Escarti

International Meeting on Astrocytes

Save the date !

3 days and 2 nights from Wednesday January 21st to Friday January 23d, in La Clusaz, Haute Savoie.

The program is planned to start at 3:00 pm on Wednesday and to conclude at 1:00 pm on Friday.

IMPORTANT: Booking and buying train tickets from Paris to Annecy are under the entire responsibility of the participants. ENP students only will be reimbursed. A shuttle service will be organized to and from the station to the venue in La Clusaz for appointed trains. More details to come in September!

 

NEXT ENP DAYS IN THE FRENCH ALPS : DISCOVERY AND SCIENCE

France Life Imaging et l’école doctorale européenne EMIDS organisent un workshop intitulé « Imaging your career », destiné aux doctorants, post-doctorants et étudiants de M2 en Imagerie, du 22 au 24 septembre prochain sur le site de la Pitié-Salpêtrière à Paris.

 Imaging your career Workshop for Students

Scientific events are opportunities for our members to contribute to national and international research. They also highlight the level of excellence reached by ENP teams and partners.

Date, duration, design and theme of the event are freely determined by the organizers. The event must be held in Ile-de-France.

A special attention will be brought to interdisciplinary projects. 

ENP team leaders can apply on calls.paris-neuroscience.fr .

L'École des Neurosciences de Paris Île-de-France est une fondation  créée en 2007 comme Réseau Thématique de Recherche Avancée (RTRA) sous l'impulsion du Ministère de la Recherche et de l'Enseignement Supérieur.

Le but de cette fondation de coopération scientifique est de promouvoir la recherche et faciliter ses applications avec un intérêt particulier porté à la formation, l’accueil et l’accompagnement scientifique.

Le réseau ENP regroupe plus de 100 équipes de recherche dans le domaine des neurosciences réparties sur 22 centres de recherche.

Research Highlight: Molecular control of cocaine’s consequences on the brain and behaviour

The ENP team of Jocelyne Caboche and Peter Vanhoutte (UPMC) have pioneered findings on the interplay of two key neurotransmitter systems that are recruited by drugs of abuse to change behaviour, namely Dopamine and Glutamate. In this study, first-authored by ENP graduate alumni Emma Cahill, they asked whether direct receptor-receptor interactions could contribute to cocaine’s effects. This hypothesis was confirmed.

Research Highlight : Ultrasound tracks odor representation in brain

ENP team leader Hirac Gurden and his collaborators used a new ultrasound imaging technique and provided the first ever in vivo visualization of activity in the piriform cortex of rats during odor perception. This deep-seated brain structure plays an important role in olfaction, and was inaccessible to functional imaging until now.

Research Highlight: Understanding how acoustic information is processed

ENP team leader and Collège de France professor Christine Petit has made major advances in our understanding of how the peripheral auditory system processes acoustic information. She recently published a review article on auditory distortions. This article discusses the mechanisms underlying the non-linear amplification of vibrations induced by weak sounds in the cochlea. This non-linear amplication generates instantaneous waveform distortion, which has consequences on the processing of the original auditory stimuli.
