Neuropsychopharmacology of addiction


Voir la version en français

The aim of the team is, using rodent models, to elucidate the factors which favor and aggravate the development of pathologies related to the processing of reward, be they natural (sugar) or pharmacologic (drugs of abuse). The consequences of overconsumption of these rewards during critical periods such as adolescence or during adulthood are studied at the behavioral level (executive functions, emotional memories, motivation..) and at the neuronal level (genetic models, functional neuroanatomy, in vivo electrophysiology, activation/inhibition of neuronal circuits).
