Blitz lectures by doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows

Our young researchers, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows, will present their work during the scientific blitz sessions. Beyond the importance of presenting their results to a large audience, it is also a possibility to win a prize for the best two performances.


  • Matthieu AGUILERA, PhD student, LNCA: Rhythmic sensory stimulation to restore brain dynamics and boost memory in a new mouse model of early Alzheimer's disease
  • Alana ARROUET, PhD student, U1114/CERVO: Highway to temporal prediction: using motricity to unravel its secret
  • Melaine BALCON, PhD student, CAMB: Optical control of PIEZO1 channels
  • Yasmine BRIK, PhD student, INCI: Consequences of neonatal maternal separation on the development of sensorimotor function and pain sensation: a comparison between Wistar and Sprague Dawley rat
  • Baptiste BRULÉ, PhD student, LNCA: Accelerated epigenetic aging involves polycomb group proteins in Huntington’s disease
  • Laetitia DEGIOGIS, Postdoc, ICube: Brain functional remodeling and alcohol vulnerability in GPR88 KO mice
  • Wilf GARDNER, Postdoc, INCI: A central role for the mPFC molecular clock in the development and treatment of mood disorders
  • Volodya HOVHANNISYAN, PhD student, INCI: Increased morphine degradation by reactive astrocytes through AhR reduces its anti-allodynic effect in a mouse model of neuropathic pain
  • Élodie PANZER, PhD student, LNCA: Projections from the medial prefrontal cortex to the ventral midline thalamus are necessary for cognitive flexibility in rats 
  • Marion SCHOTT, PhD student, INCI : Mechanistic study of the tail of the Ventral Tegmental Area (tVTA) and its role in acquired helplessness in rodent models

Poster session

Any participant is welcome to present a scientific poster. A contest will reward the best one.
