from DR2 CNRS, LNCA, Strasbourg's lab will give a presentation entitled 'Early memory deficits appearing during preclinical stages in mouse models of Alzheimer disease'

Invited by Nora Abrous (Neurocentre Magendie)

Abstract

Over the last decade, the main finding about Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is that initial signs have been detected 15 to 20 years before diagnosis (e.g., see Bateman et al, 2012 and Jack et al, 2009). Since then, a great deal of efforts concentrated on the identification of early events and biomarkers that might help us to understand AD pathogenesis. The nature and severity of recognition deficits evolve as AD pathology spreads through medial temporal lobe networks and connected brain structures playing a key role in recognition memories. Therefore, object recognition paradigms have been useful to determine early memory deficits in animal models of AD. The pertinence of behavioral data provided by these paradigms will be analyzed in regard to the neuropathological phenotype of genetically modified rodent models of AD. Our aim is to outline clear advantages and possible limitations in their translational value. We propose that future progress depends on understanding neural networks supporting each form of recognition memory in parallel with the improvement of animal models of AD.

Summary:

The prefrontal cortex (PFC) has been implicated in processing of the emotional state of others through nonverbal communication. This social cognitive function is altered in psychiatric disorders such as autism and schizophrenia and is hypothesized to rely on an intact cortical neuronal excitatory and inhibitory balance. Here, by combining in vivo electrophysiology with a behavioral task for emotion recognition in mice, we show that neurons in the medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) are differentially activated during exploration of conspecifics depending on their affective state. Optogenetic manipulations revealed a double dissociation of interneuron roles in emotion recognition; specifically, inhibition of mPFC somatostatin (SOM+) but not of parvalbumin (PV+) interneurons abolishes emotion discrimination. Conversely, activation of mPFC SOM+ interneurons induces social discrimination in this task. Our findings provide new insights into the neurobiological mechanisms of emotion recognition.
