Neurosciences Unit
Major Interests
This unit investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the fine-tuning of neuronal communication, and their consequences for plasticity, neuroprotection and cognition. The brain possesses substances that either enhance or depress communication between neurones, adjusting neuronal activity to specific needs. Our broad investigation goal is to elucidate how these substances interplay and how they are involved in diseases of the nervous system.
