The Multidimensional Brain

Leaders : François Rouyer, Martial Ruat

The "Molecules and Circuits" department aims at understanding brain architecture and function by investigating molecular and cellular networks. Biochemistry, neuropharmacology, neurogenetics and neurophysiology approaches are combined to analyze the mechanisms underlying neural functions in the vertebrates and invertebrates.

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.
