Cognition, Plasticity & Neuropathologies

In brief

Our team investigates the molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for cognitive dysfunction in neurodevelopmental (Intellectual Disability, Coffin-Lowry Syndrome, Duchenne muscular dystrophy) and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer). Our multidisciplinary approach in rodent models is complemented by preclinical explorations of treatments induced by environmental modifications, pharmacological and gene therapies.
