CNS development and plasticityMain domain : Cellular & molecular neurosciencesNicolas RENIER’s plans to develop and use cutting-edge 3D whole brain imaging and genetic tools aimed at elucidating how neuronal networks in the adult brain can be rewired at a large scale.
The team will :
Investigate the molecular mechanisms of axon and branch dynamics in the adult brain
Gain new information on neuro-vascular interaction during plastic events
Develop correlative 3D imaging of live calcium imaging in the behaving animal with whole brain mapping of neuronal markers and connectivity
Determine the role of structural plasticity to support transitions in behavior in the mouse.
