Scientific summary

We aim to understand the mechanisms of formation of neuronal synapses and vesicular trafficking allowing transport of synaptic proteins during maintenance and plasticity of excitatory and inhibitory synapses. To do so, we use classical biochemistry, and molecular and cellular biology technics. We are fond of multi-scales imaging: at the level of the organism with MRI, at the tissular level with confocal tile imaging, and at the cellular and molecular levels with rapid video-microscopy like spinning disc and/or single particle tracking with QDOTS.
