To decipher the molecular mechanisms that allow brain gene expression to adapt to environmental challenges, we focus on the function of inducible transcription factors. Glucocorticoid hormones (GC) plays a key role in physiological and psychological responses to stress. It has multifaceted functions in the brain, most likely reflecting distinct actions in different brain areas and cell  populations.

The optic tectum has emerged as a tractable visuomotor transformer, in which anatomical and functional studies can allow a better understanding of how behavior is controlled by neuronal circuits. We are examining the formation and function of the visual system in zebrafish larvae using in vivo time-lapse microscopy and state-of-the-art “connectomic” and “optogenetic” approaches to monitor and perturb neuronal activity. We apply complementary cellular and molecular analyses to dissect this circuit and identify the neuronal substrate of visual behaviors.

Les systèmes sensoriels transforment les fluctuations du monde physique en séquences de potentiels d'action qui sont intégrés pour contrôler les sorties motrices. La locomotion repose sur des circuits composés par des interneurones spinaux et capables de générer des oscillations. La physiologie moderne a permis d'établir la connectivité entre certaines cellules sensorielles et interneurones, mais la plupart des études se sont limitées à des préparations paralysées où les entrées locales ne peuvent être actives.

Le système nerveux central des vertébrés est un assemblage complexe de neurones et de cellules gliales, mis en place en nombres et positions précis, principalement au cours du développement. Le maintien de progéniteurs neuraux jusqu’à des stades plus avancés et même jusqu’à l’âge adulte est cependant crucial, puisque ces progéniteurs pourront être utilisés dans des événements adaptatifs tardifs.
