INCIA at the FENS 2022 meeting in Paris

INCIA at the FENS 2022 meeting in Paris

In July 2022, INCIA’s researchers, post-docs and PhD students will contribute to the FENS forum in Paris.

We will get started with two satellite events organized on the 8th of July, one day before FENS kicks in.

Mathieu Wolff (team DECAD) and his colleagues are proposing a satellite event dedicated to “The Cognitive Thalamus” aimed at elucidating how thalamic functions contribute to cognition. More information and the full international program, which includes a talk from PhD student Sarah Morceau, is available here:

This event received support from our lab and also from the GDR Mémoire.

Jean-Luc Morel (team Memory), Didier Le Ray and Etienne Guillaud (team MotoPSyn) and colleagues from other institutions are organizing an event on “Neurosciences in Space”:

Jean-Luc Morel is also co-organizing a symposium with Fabrice Dabertrand (Aurora, USA) on “Vascular hypotheses for understanding and restoring memory impairments

Speakers: Joanna Wardlaw, Cecile Duplaà, Fabrice Dabertrand and Axel Montagne.

Serge Ahmed (CANDY) is talking in S56 / Thinking outside the box: alternative targets and strategies for addiction
Non-drug rewards as alternative to drug addiction

INCIA members will also contribute through multiple poster presentations:
