Our ENP Days 2018 meeting was held in Troyes, Sept 19th-21st

As every year, our 10th annual meeting offered an optimal opportunity for the ENP network to gather and exchange between young researchers and established scientists.

A Poster session, two blitztalks sessions (see Booklet) and a presentation of the social and scientific activities were given by ENP students. Congratulations to Sebastian Ceballo who won the 2018 Poster Prize.

Our 2018 program also included twelve plenary lectures. Invited speakers were Anne-Dominique Lodeho-Devauchelle and Sven Colette from Campus Biotech (Switzerland); Michael Halassa from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA); Songhai Shi from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (USA); Dwight Bergles from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (USA); Andrea Volterra from the University of Lausanne (Switzerland); Hiroshi Kuba from Nagoya University (Japan); Fiona Doetsch from University of Basel (Switzerland); Jeremy Niven from University of Sussex (United Kingdom); Christian Lüscher from University of Geneva (Switzerland) ; Adèle Combes from Bioserenity (Troyes, Paris) Bassem Hassan from Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle (France); Daniel Pressnitzerand Yves Boubenec from Ecole Normale Supérieure (France). 

Lastly, a cocktail reception, a visit of Champagne cellars and a Gala dinner were fully valued as complementary social events in Troyes making this ENP Days 2018 meeting a real success.

LA COMPRÉHENSION DU CERVEAU est l’un des grands enjeux du 21ème siècle. Les processus physiologiques qui sous-tendent des activités aussi diverses que l’apprentissage, la perception, la vigilance, la résistance au stress, la prise de décision ou encore l’interaction homme-machine, commencent à être de mieux en mieux connus des chercheurs en neurosciences. Les applications sont nombreuses, aussi bien dans la vie de tous les jours que dans le domaine des pathologies neuropsychiatriques.

Pour accélérer les progrès dans ces domaines et renforcer l’excellence scientifique en France, l'ENP repère et attirer dès aujourd’hui ceux qui feront la recherche de demain.



RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT : Microbiome Influences Prenatal and Adult Microglia in a Sex-Specific Manner
ENP team leader Sonia GAREL and coll. using extensive experimental methods for evaluating for instance gene expression level, chromatin accessibility or cellular density now reveal that microglia exhibit sex- and age-dependent modifications in response to the microbiome in mice.
RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: TEMPORALLY PRECISE SINGLE-CELL-RESOLUTION OPTOGENETICS
Team leader Valentina Emiliani and coll in collaboration with Ed Boyden at MIT (Cambridge, USA) now devised a way to control single-neuron by optogenetics. Authors using a light-sensitive opsine protein targeted to neuronal bodies (soma-targeted) developed by Ed Boyden and taking advantage of the patterned 2-photon holographic illumination for optogenetics applications developed by the highly skilled expertise of the Emiliani’s team show exquisite figures and recordings of single synaptic response to stimulation paving therefore the way for a future clear neuronal connectivity map.
