The Multidimensional Brain
The Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience (Neuro-PSI), joint Research Unit of the CNRS and Paris-Sud University, is developing fundamental and interdisciplinary aspects of the organization and functions of the nervous system, based on experimental and theoretical approaches at all scales of analysis. It will form, with its sister Institute NeuroSpin, the NeuroSaclay Center promoting Neuroscience at the highest international standards within the Paris-Saclay University.

How Mexican cavefish evolved in extreme environments

New insight into the development and function of Mexican cavefish brains reveals how the animals adapted their behaviour to cope with extreme environments.
In a study published in eLife, researchers from the Paris-Saclay Institute of Neuroscience, demonstrate how the developmental evolution of the brain in cave-dwelling Astyanax mexicanus (A. mexicanus) underlies the evolution of its survival behaviours. A second study from the US, published at the same time in eLife, suggests higher levels of hypocretin (HCRT) in the cavefish brain – a chemical compound associated with human narcolepsy – accounts for the loss of sleep in these animals.
