Each year, Paris-region neuroscience team leaders are welcome to apply to join the ENP.

Since 2013 and by request of the ENP Scientific Advisory Board, ENP teams affiliated in 2010 and before also need to reapply to maintain their ENP membership.

2014 Calls for New Teams and Renewals are open

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

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: Evolution of the Brain

ENP researcher Jean-François Brunet and his team published new findings on the evolutionary origin of somatic and visceral neurons (involved, respectively, in interactions with the outside world and in monitoring the interior milieu). He and his colleagues examined the somatic and visceral sensorimotor circuits in mollusks (gastropods and cephalopods), and observed that they expressed the same specific genes than in vertebrates.

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.
