More than 150 attendees enjoyed the interactive format of the conference.

Three local neuroscientists presented their research area and answered the audience questions:

  • Thierry Amédée, DR CNRS - IINS*, works on the characterization of the relationships between neuroinflammation in the brain induced by Alzheimer’s disease and alteration of some functional neural networks.
  • Jean-Luc Morel, CR CNRS - IMN**, works on the links between vascular disease and memory disorders.
  • Rabia Bouali-Benazzouz, IR Univ. of Bordeaux - IINS, focuses her research activity on the basic mechanisms of chronic pain in the nervous system.

* IINS: Interdisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience
** IMN: Institute of Neurodegenerative Diseases
