Time in perception and action
The processing of time in the nervous system plays an adaptive role and altered interactions between different time scales lead to many pathologies. Indeed, the nervous system integrates, transmits and stores information from the millisecond to the year, while being under the constant influence of internal and external environmental factors. The NeuroTime axis studies the fundamental mechanisms of this temporal organisation in the nervous system and the pathological consequences of its disorganisation in order to develop innovative therapies:
- study of the functional organisation of the nervous system from the millisecond to the year
- study of the temporal disorganisation of the nervous system
- therapeutic approaches for the temporal reorganisation of the nervous system
NeuroTime involves 13 NeuroStra teams associated with two platforms using state-of-the-art technologies to study biological rhythms in various animal (Chronobiotron) and human (CIRCSom) models.
