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.

Our research team recently appointed at the Brain and Spinal Cord Institute will serve to close the gap between clinical and basic research in neuroscience. We will functionally characterize genetic variants for neurodegenerative diseases and develop models using these mutations. Further, we will use these models to identify and validate compounds with neuroprotective properties. Thus, our research will serve as a ring between clinical and basic research and we hope it will advance both these fields of neuroscience.

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.

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.
