ENP Days 2018

Are you a scientist who wants to consolidate your independence by establishing a research team and continuing to develop a success career in Europe? The ERC Consolidator Grant could be for you. You can also apply if you have recently created an independent, excellent research team and want to strengthen it.

You will find all needed information on ERC website:


This page is devoted to a selection of Calls, Grants, Prizes and Job Offers that may interest neuroscientists and students. It is updated regularly.

The École des Neurosciences de Paris Île-de-France (ENP) is a Foundation created in 2007 at the instigation of the French Ministry of Research as a Thematic Network for Advanced Research (RTRA in French).

This scientific foundation aims to promote research and to facilitate its applications.

The ENP network brings together more than 100 neuroscience research teams, located in 23 centers of the Paris region.

Research Highlight: Formation and suppression of acoustic memories during human sleep

Listeners may learn novel sensory informations during sleep but the question of how sleep stages and their associated rhythms modulate environmental learning remains unanswered. ENP team leader Sid Kouider and his coll. now demonstrate that the formation and suppression of new memories can take place during sleep.

Research Highlight: A V0 core neuronal circuit for inspiration

Breathing involves permanent rhythmic contractions of skeletal muscles in a bilaterally synchronized manner. The executive control of respiration relies on sets of brainstem interneurons assembled into an ordered synaptic network: the respiratory central pattern generator (CPG). The ENP group leader Gilles Fortin and coll. investigate the relationship of defined neuronal subtypes to the organization of the respiratory CPG.

Research Highlight: Light controls cerebral blood flow in naive animals

Photoactivation of specific populations of cells via a combination of Optogenetics and fMRI is currently used to generate brain maps of connectivity and function. Group leader Serge Charpak and coll. now thoroughly examined in vivo the potential side effects of light on cerebral blood flow (CBF) in anesthetized naive mice using 2-photon laser scanning microscopy and ultrafast functional ultrasound.
