TITRE: Longitudinal two-photon microscopy of the living brain to tackle cellular plasticity.

Static assembly of multiple cell types in the brain is not sustainable when physiological state deviates from homeostasis. Cellular networks must adapt to changes in the environment, aging and disease conditions. What can be learned from the dynamics of cellular networks assembly/disassembly? My lab uses in vivo 2-photon microscopy of the mouse brain to investigate the structural plasticity of cellular networks in normal living conditions and in various pathological states replicating human diseases. I’ll present 2 on-going projects for: (1) tracking the impact of stress on a cortical synaptic engram of motor learning, and (2) for studying the impact of status epilepticus on the remodeling of the blood brain barrier. The results unravel disease mechanisms and have implications for the design of new treatment strategies.

Giovanni Marsicano from Endocannabinoid and Neuroadaptation Group's lab will give the PhD seminar series December entitled 'Cannabinoid CB1 receptor signaling in the brain: the where matters'.

Invitant : Bordeaux Neurocampus / NBA

Abstract :
Cannabinoid drugs (e.g. the active principle of the plant cannabis, D9-tetrahydrocannabinol, THC) exert several effects on the brain via the activation of the G protein-coupled type-1 cannabinoid receptors (CB1).

Dr. Karun Singh : How do Autism spectrum disorder risk genes impact brain development?
   Afficher l'article web Link

How do Autism spectrum disorder risk genes impact brain development? One of the leading hypotheses is that risk genes disrupt the development of neural circuits. In the first part of my talk, I will go over our use of mouse models to study ASD risk genes and their role in synaptic development and dysfunction. In the final part, I will discuss our latest efforts to study in modeling ASD and synaptic function using gene editing of human neurons, and their potential use for drug discovery.

Scientific focus :
Dr. Karun Singh is an Investigator at the Stem Cell and Cancer Research Institute (SCCRI) and an Assistant Professor with the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences at McMaster University, Canada since 2012. He holds the David Braley Chair in Human Stem Cell Research. He obtained his PhD from the University of Toronto and his postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in USA. Currently, Dr. Singh's independent program employs a combination of mouse and patient-derived neural cellular models to study how genes associated with Autism spectrum disorders impact brain development. Currently his lab is focusing on 3 questions:

1. What is the normal role of ASD linked genes during mammalian brain development, with a particular emphasis on synaptic development?
2. How do ASD-linked genetic mutations impair brain (synaptic) development, from a biochemical to the functional perspective?
3. Is it possible to model neurodevelopmental disorders using human neuronal models, and use them for drug discovery?
