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: 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.

Research Highlight: The role of nicotinic receptors in social decision making

ENP team leader Sylvie Granon and her group recently published a novel finding about the role of nicotinic receptors in social decision making. They demonstrated that mice lacking the beta2 subunit of these receptors had impaired social decision making. Despite having similar motivation levels, beta2 null mice struggled to make flexible social decisions. In addition, they showed that ultrasonic communication is largely enhanced by a real social interaction as compared to a partial one.

Research Highlight : The psychotometic effects of first cannabis use

 ENP team leaders Marie-Odile Krebs and Thérèse Jay conducted a study on genes and subjective experience upon trying cannabis for the first time. They found that CNR1 genetic variants were linked to the tendency to experience psychotic symptoms. They observed no evidence for a link between psychotic symptoms and genetic variants of the COMT, BDNF, and AKT1 genes.
