The Audition team is investigating the mechanisms of auditory perception, at the interface between low-level processing of acoustic features and high-level cognitive processes. We use a wide range of tools in order to address this research topic, from single unit recordings in behaving animals to advanced psychophysics and EEG in human subjects. Current projects in the lab revolve around three major threads:

Notre laboratoire s’intéresse au développement du cerveau et à sa capacité à se protéger des désordres mentaux, telles que la déficience intellectuelle et la neuro-dégénérescence. Bien que les medias, mais aussi la littérature scientifique, mettent l’accent sur la maladie du cerveau, il est bon de rappeler que la vaste majorité des gens – et d’animaux – sont en bonne santé et ne souffrent pas de désordres mentaux. En réalité, la robustesse du cerveau est telle que même des individus ayant subi des mutations qui pourraient conduire à un désordre mental ne développent aucun symptôme.

The overall objective of the group is to unravel principles of neural computations underlying sensory-motor integration in the vertebrate brain. We use the zebrafish larva as it currently constitutes the only vertebrate system amenable to whole-brain recording with cellular resolution. Using one- or two-photon light-sheet microscopy, we are able to monitor the long-term activity of the quasi-entirety of the 100,000 neurons that comprise the animal brain, as it performs basic sensory-motor tasks.

Our brain needs to constantly fuse sensory information detected by our multiple senses in order to produce a seamless coherent representation of the world. Rather than being the exception, this binding process is ubiquitous to sensory-motor integration and is implicated in most cognitive functions. Its impairment is a cause of various pathologies, such as schizophrenia or autism. Multisensory processing operates on all brain levels from primary cortices over subcortical structures up to higher associative centers, while the smallest operational units are single multisensory neurons.

Dans nos sociétés modernes, l’abondance de nourriture riche en énergie et le mode vie sédentaire entrainent un déséquilibre de la balance énergétique à l’origine du développement de l’obésité. Selon le World Health Organization (WHO), l’obésité au niveau mondial a plus que doublé depuis 1980. En 2008, 1,5 millions d’adultes de 20 ans et plus sont en surpoids. L’obésité est aussi considérée en France comme une épidémie.

The Brain Dynamics group focuses on the chronoarchitecture of the Human brain supporting perception and cognition.Our work is committed to the view that perception and cognition rely on inferential brain processes which are fundamental to contemporary theories of cortical functions. Neural inferences are shaped by both hard and soft constraints e.g. cognitive architecture and plasticity, respectively.

Our team investigates the relationships between spinal motoneurons and the muscle fibers they are targeting, and how thisrelationship is altered in the context of a human degenerative disease of motoneurons (ALS). To do so, we have recently pioneeredtwo new preparations that allow studying the electrophysiological properties of identified spinal motoneurons.

La variabilité de la réponse de même que la prédiction de la rechute dans les pathologies récurrentes sont de vastes questions scientifiques. Cette variabilité de la réponse est particulièrement importante et imprévisible dans les addictions et dans les troubles de l’humeur rendant en grand partie compte des difficultés de prise en charge de ces pathologies. Pouvoir la prédire pour mieux la prévenir est un enjeu majeur pour le développement d'une médecine personnalisée.
