Research teams

The Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience is composed of 12 research teams including 5 emerging teams * which are devoted to studying the physiological and pathological processes of the nervous system and to developing the innovative techniques with which to investigate them.

Team "Neurocytoskeleton Dynamics and Structure"

Directors Isabelle ARNAL and Annie ANDRIEUX
The objective of the team “Neuro-cytoskeleton Dynamics and Structure” is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying cytoskeleton organisation in neuronal development and plasticity, and to understand how these mechanisms are deregulated in pathological conditions.

Team "Brain, Behavior and Neuromodulation"

Director : Julien BASTIN
The main focus of our team is to understand the common pathophysiological mechanisms between different psychiatric and neurological diseases.
Read more

Team "Translation regulation in normal and pathological conditions" *

Manager : Stéphane BELIN
Understanding how the translational complex and translation regulation can control key processes in neuroprotection and/or central nervous system regenerationResearch themesA major challenge in Biology is to understand how genes are expressed and regulated in space and time in order to ensure cell specificity, homeostasis and organism development.

Team "Neuropathologies and Synaptic Dysfunctions"

Director : Alain BUISSON
The team "Neuropathologies and synaptic dysfunctions" develops a project to characterize the molecular mechanisms underlying early Alzheimer's disease by focusing on the synapse which represents the first target of the disease.

Team "Physiopathology of Motivation" *

Manager : Sébastien CARNICELLA
The major aim of our group is to uncover the physiopathological mechanisms underlying the development of neuropsychiatric symptoms in neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease (PD).

Team "Brain aging and repair" *

Manager : Michael DECRESSAC
Decipher the molecular signals governing neuronal senescence and Elucidate the pathogenic mechanisms underlying age-related neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.

Team "Wireless Neural Implants" *

Manager :  Clément HEBERT
The team develops many kinds of neural implants with a main focus on wireless and battery-free concept for neural circuit reformation after an injury.

Team "Functional Neuroimaging and Brain Perfusion"

Directors : Benjamin LEMASSON and Thomas CHRISTEN
Our multidisciplinary team works on the development of innovative techniques for acquisition and analysis for Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (MRI and MRS) and on their preclinical and clinical evaluation in neurosciences.

Team CMyPath – "Cellular Myology and Pathologies"

Director : Isabelle MARTY
The team "Cellular Myology and Pathologies" gathers basic scientists, geneticists and clinicians, working on muscle pathologies related to defect in muscle calcium release.

Team "Central nervous system: From development to repair" *

Manager :  Homaira NAWABI
The aim of the team “Central nervous system: from development to repair” is to uncover the mechanisms underlying axon regeneration and guidance in the central nervous system (CNS) by using the eye as a window to the brain and spinal cord.

Team "Intracellular Dynamics and Neurodegeneration"

Director : Frédéric SAUDOU
The Team "Intracellular Dynamics and Neurodegeneration" has proposed a major role of HTT in the regulation of fast axonal transport (FAT) and found that HTT regulates efficacy and the directionality of FAT through phosphorylations.
