Interactions between emotions and memory systems: from normal to pathological aging.

Cognitive / Behavioral Neuroscience / Neuropharmacology

Research axis:

Positive reinforcing properties of abused drugs: neural and molecular substrates

Scientific expertise:

  • Molecular biology (real-time qPCR) and biochemistry (western blot)
  • Nutritional / drug self-administration rodent models
  • Animal behaviour (place preference, anxiety, spatial memory)
  • Specific stereotaxy (cannulae implantation)


  • Role of nicotinic receptor subtypes in nicotine’s addictive and cognitive effects
