Hear about our latest research at the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum!

  • Giovanni Usseglio: Orienting motor responses controlled by distinct subsets of V2a reticulospinal neurons - Poster 908.

Both are on Sunday 12/07 & Tuesday 14/07 pm.

Session d11b.



We are a team of neurobiologists. Our research addresses the cooperative roles of the brainstem and the spinal cord in elaborating integrated and adaptative motor behaviors. We focus on locomotion and breathing, vital motor functions and exquisite model systems with privileged experimental accessibility. On the mouse model, we deploy multidisciplinary approaches and concepts interfacing developmental neurobiology, circuit function and behavior. Our methods include ex-vivo electrophysiology, optogenetics & functional imaging in vivo, advanced viral-based circuit tracings and immunohistochemistry.
The Neuronal Circuits and Motor Control group is part of the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience, a mixed CNRS & Paris-Saclay University unit (UMR9197) headed by François Rouyer. 
Our address is: 
Neuro-PSI, CNRS Bat 32
