Grand Prix de l'Académie des sciences

Prix Lamonica de Neurologie (Fondation pour la recherche biomédicale - (P.C.L. 110.000 euros). Le prix est décerné à Pier Vincenzo PIAZZA, médecin, psychiatre, directeur de recherche de classe exceptionnelle à l'Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale, directeur du Neuro-Centre Magendie à Bordeaux, responsable de l'équipe "Physiopathologie des addictions et des mémoires traumatiques"

Prix annuel de neurologie attribué à un scientifique, sans aucune condition de nationalité, travaillant dans un laboratoire français.

Un cinquième du montant du prix (20.000 euros) est destiné au lauréat et les quatre cinquièmes restants (80.000 euros) permettront de financer deux années de post-doctorat.





Habenular CB1 Receptors Control the Expression of Aversive Memories.

Memory is not a simple box of souvenirs. Memories are also, and most importantly, a safety system for organisms. With the help of negative memories, known as “aversive” memories, we can avoid a threat that we have already confronted. We have just discovered that the cannabinoid receptors of the brain control these memories that are crucial for survival. This study is published in Neuron.

Bordeaux School of Neurosciences:
The microscopic study of synapses relies on a large array of advanced techniques. Successful research in the field requires technological innovation and the interweaving of a variety of approaches at the molecular, cellular, and functional levels. The advanced course will allow the students to integrate the basic techniques in molecular and cellular neurobiology with advanced state-of-the art molecular, imaging and functional methodologies, through direct hands-on experiments. Taught techniques will range from proteomics and transcriptomics, in vitro and in vivo gene transfer (including viral technology), cellular imaging of proteins by confocal microscopy and by super-resolution microscopy (STED and PALM/STORM), single-particle tracking methodologies, live imaging of protein interactions (FRET, FLIM) at synapses, electron microscopy. The advanced course will also include electrophysiological and optophysiological approaches to address the functional properties of synaptic molecules such as recombinant receptors and to assess the role of various proteins in synaptic function and plasticity.

On-site chair: Nathalie Sans, PhD, University of Bordeaux, FR (Equipe Montcouquiol-Sans)





The endocannabinoid system (ECS) adjusts behavior and metabolism by responding to environmental changes in food availability. ECS activity is benefi cial when access to food is scarce or unpredictable but in times of plenty, the ECS favors obesity and metabolic disease. In pages 524–537 of this issue, Mazier et al present emerging evidence that suggest new physiological roles of the ECS in the context of energy balance, and point to novel mechanisms of action, that again renders the ECS as an attractive target for therapy.
