Physiology of Neural Networks

Team leader : Philippe ISOPE

Research in our team is focused on the understanding of synaptic properties underlying functional organization in neuronal microcircuits. Our main goal is to identify operational modes of normal and pathological information processing in the cerebellum, olfactory bulb and spinal cord. We combine different types of technique, including in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, molecular biology, two photon imaging and optogenetic.

Open post-doc position: Spatiotemporal information processing in the rodent cerebellum in vitro (Electrophysiology, 1P and 2P imaging).
