Background on the genetics of ASD
Autism spectrum disorders are a heterogeneous group of pervasive neurodevelopmental disorders affecting approximately 1% of the population. The diagnosis of ASD is based on impairments in reciprocal social communication and stereotyped behaviors. Behind the […]
The project SoNeTAA combines human-human and human-machine interactions with electroencephalography (EEG) recording to approach social cognition from a situated and reciprocal standpoint. The project especially focuses on Autism Spectrum Disorders and aims to bridge […]
Recent progress in sequencing and bioinformatics methods have given access to ancient DNA. This project aims at understanding the differential evolutionary pressure on the key proteins implicated in the nervous system, especially those related […]
Phelan McDermid Syndrome: from mechanisms to treatments
Phelan-McDermid syndrome (PMS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder with non-specific clinical features. The main symptoms are hypotonia, intellectual disability (ID), absent or delayed speech together with minor dysmorphic features. More than half of the patients […]
Imaginons la recherche
“Imaginons la recherche” is a project for supporting structural change in research organisations to promote Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) as defined by the european commission : Public engagement (outreach & citizen science) Gender […]
The serotonin-NAS-melatonin pathway and susceptibility to ASD
Sleep difficulties are a major concern for families with ASD, but are often considered as an epiphenomenon, and therefore do not catch the attention of the medical and scientific community. In 2008, we reported […]
Brain imaging and genetics
Our group is exploring the human brain using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and electroencephalogram (EEG). These approaches are combined with our genetic data in order to better understand the genetic and phenotypic diversity of […]
GRAVITY allows for rapid visualization and analysis of all the exonic variants stored in a database or in a VCF file by mapping them on an interaction network. It is designed as a plugin […]
