The aim of my work is to characterize the dynamics of the hippocampal-prefrontal network during the different stages of traumatic memories processing (encoding, consolidation, extinction, and recall) looking for electrophysiological signatures of their contextual modulation. I use optogenetics to selectively modulate the activity of the hippocampo-prefrontal monosynaptic pathway to test its role during this kind of learning.
I am also working with Guillaume Dugué to develop the use of inertial sensors to increase the quality of rodents’ behaviour scoring.
We are always looking for motivated students to join us for short or long internships. Do not hesitate to email us.
