Cocaine addiction (CocAdd) is a major public health issue affecting 3% of the worlwide population, without validated pharmacotherapy. Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs)have been repeatedly associated in Human and rodent response to cocaine. nAChRs alpha5 […]
Lung diseases are also a major public health problem. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) will be the third cause of mortality worldwide in 2020 and lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality […]
There is experimental and biomedical evidence that the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) is implicated in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) pathology. The only reasonably efficient FDA approved treatment for early stage AD, blockers of acetylcholine esterase […]
We are interested in deciphering the relationships that link gut microbiota with the immune system and the brain. So far, the mechanisms underlying these interplay, and most importantly their consequences, remain largely unknown. Therefore […]
Understanding mechanisms underlying normal complex behaviours and the abnormalities that accompany most neuropathologies is a primary challenge in fundamental and biomedical research. However, optimal use of the large body of genetic, molecular, electrophysiological, behavioural […]
