Neurophysiology of the auditory synapse
Neurophysiologie de la synapse auditive

Genetics and Physiology of Hearing, Paris



English version

Fundamental questions that are essential for efficient hearing rehabilitation are addressed: how do auditory hair cells synapses and central synaptic connections evolve with aging, sound trauma and genetic neuropathies? The molecular changes occurring in auditory synaptic transmission are deciphered in mouse models. Methods of viral gene transfer are developped in order to rescue and reverse the synaptic defects.

Innovative techniques: cochlear viral gene transfer. gene editing. cochlear and hair cell electrophysiology.
