Around 1% of children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), yet there are currently no drugs designed specifically to treat their main symptoms. Working to change this is the IMI-funded EU-AIMS project. The […]

The project SoNeTAA (Social Neuroscience for Therapeutic Approaches in Autism) 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 […]
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 […]
Establishment of cohorts of patients with ASD
To tackle the genetic and phenotypic heterogeneity of ASD, our group is part of several national and international consortia that provide the specific expertise required to explore different facets of ASD. In France, our […]
