Scientific summary

Jean-Bernard Manent, PhD is a research scientist at INMED (Institut de Neurobiologie de la Mediterranée), a Neuroscience Research Center belonging to INSERM, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research, and to Aix-Marseille University. His research is focused on epileptogenic cortical malformations and more especially on the mechanisms responsible for seizure generation and propagation, and their consequences for cortical operation. During his career, he studied the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating normal and pathological neuronal migration. He also gained expertise in the generation and analysis of appropriated animal models of cortical malformations causing epilepsy and intellectual disability, as well as in the design of molecular biological tools aiming at visualizing and manipulating neuronal networks. He had obtained several grants from governmental agencies and charity foundations for supporting his research and holds a permanent position at INSERM since 2009.
