Scientific summary

My current reseach is focussed on 1) the mechanisms of intrinsic plasticity in cortical and subcortical neurons, 2) the determinents of neuronal timing, 3) axon physiology and 4) spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP). We employ multiple whole-cell recordings, hybrid neuron-computer techniques, molecular tools and laser scanning microscopy. Supported by ANR, FRM, INSERM, Ministry of Research & Région PACA.
