Dopamine and neuronal assemblies


Voir la version en français

Our laboratory examines the functions of the « extended basal ganglia network », a neuronal network composed of interconnected limbic and motor nuclei. We aim at characterizing this network at the synaptic level, focusing on how synaptic transmission and plasticity are controlled by dopamine. Our research will provide new understandings of physiological functions (voluntary movements, associative learning…) and of dopamine-associated disorders (Parkinson’s disease, addiction…).
