Mechanisms of plasticity in mouse visual cortex

Professor Frank Sengpiel

Research in my lab focuses on experience dependent plasticity of binocular integration in the primary visual cortex (V1). My talk will cover • Cellular mechanisms of visual cortex plasticity • Effects of dark exposure on ocular dominance plasticity • Relevance of plasticity in V1 for behavioural performance

The fate of drug resistant mutations depends on factors, which we may be able to control, such as the rate and pattern of drug use. However, it also depends on factors over which we have no control, the most important of which is the biological cost that resistance imposes on the fitness of parasites. Drug resistance mutations are known to disrupt the parasite's metabolism, generating fitness costs. In drug-treated hosts, these costs are largely compensated by the benefits conferred by the resistance. In untreated hosts, however, the magnitude of these costs will determine whether these mutations will persist and spread in the population. Current views about the costs of drug resistance in malaria parasites are almost entirely based on data regarding parasitic infections in the vertebrate host. The costs of resistance in the mosquito vector have either been ignored entirely or been given only cursory attention. I will present data and ideas arising from a new project that aims to investigate the costs of drug resistance over the whole life cycle of Plasmodium.

Attention is critical to high level cognition and it improves perceptual abilities. Many studies have delineated how attention affects neuronal firing rates, rate variability, and neuronal correlations, but a detailed understanding how this differs between cortical areas, layers and different cell types is only just emerging. To address these questions, we recorded simultaneously from multiple layers in areas V1 and V4, while monkeys performed a covert feature based spatial attention task. The presentation will delineate how attention affects different cell types in different layers of area V1 and V4, how attention affects oscillatory activity in these areas, and how it affects the information transfer between layers within an area and between areas.

Stephane's team works on translational medicine projects, concerning neurodegenerative diseases, essentially Parkinson disease, Huntington disease, and Psychiatric disorders Their major research programs relevant for Parkinson’s disease and related disorders as well as Psychiatric disorders are funded by national and/or European institutions as well as by private partnerships. The aim of those projects are: 1- The neurological and neurosurgical assessment of biotherapies for neurodegenerative diseases at initial phase of clinical development following the demonstration of safety and efficacy in non-clinical experiments. 2- The development of neuromodulation approaches for drug-resistant psychiatric and neurological diseases using optogenetic technology to better understand brain circuitry abnormalities and define new therapeutic targets. 3- The development of new neurosurgical tools and devices to assess or administrate drugs, viral vectors, cells as well as electrical or light sources devices with the help of neuronavigation system and surgical robot.
