Site : Charles Perrens

Team: Emotion, Motivation, Cognition (EMOTIV)

Domain: Neurophysiology, neuropharmacology and behavioural neurosciences

Scientific expertise:

  • A variety of electrophysiological techniques such as patch-clamp following operant behaviour, electro-optical recordings in the spinal cord of anaesthetized mice and recording with multi-electrodes in behaving mice
  • Study of neural circuitries, including the spinal cord, the locus coeruleus, and the ventral tegmental area, underpinning pathological conditions such as addiction and chronic pain.

Projects:

Attentional control, prefrontal cholinergic control and predictability of vulnerability to nicotine addiction
