Thomas Bienvenu has just won a coveted CCA-Inserm-Bettencourt position. This position allows young doctors finishing the internship and holders of PhDs in health and science, to carry out a research project within the framework of their clinicat within a team of research. He will be able to share his time between his clinical activity in the service of Professor Bruno Aouizerate and his research activity in the team of Cyril Herry. On this journey, Thomas Bienvenu is now participating in the coordination of École Santé-Sciences of the University of Bordeaux.

The LabEx BRAIN Management Committee evaluated and selected, on Friday, July 5, the thesis welding scholarships. 12 applications had been submitted.

Ashley Castellanos Jankiewicz (Team Cota - Role of hypothalamic bile acid-TGR5 receptor signaling in the regulation of energy balance) and
Nanci Winke (Team Herry - Neuronal circuits involved in the emotional modulation of pain behavior) are among the winners!

Suzana KHODER from Herry's lab will give a presentation entitled "A prefrontal-brainstem circuit mediate avoidance behavior"

Fabrice Chaudun a reçu le Prix "Sciences de la vie et de la santé" de l'Université de Bordeaux pour ses travaux sur les mécanismes neuronaux qui contrôlent les comportements liés à la peur dans l'équipe de Cyril Herry.

Cyril Herry et son équipe ont découvert les circuits neuronaux impliqués dans la discrimination contextuelle, grâce à un nouveau protocole comportemental, et à l'utilisation de l'optogénétique. Leurs résultats sont publiés dans « Neuron ».

The laboratory of Neuronal Circuits of Associative Learning at the University of Bordeaux, Neurocenter Magendie (INSERM U1215), France (, is seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our team dedicated to identifying the neuronal circuits mediating fear behavior. Our main focus is to identify the neuronal circuits, mechanisms and coding scheme of active and passive fear reactions using state of the art in vivo recordings approaches coupled to optogenetic and behavioral manipulations.
The candidate should have a strong motivation to succeed in science as well as excellent organizational and communication skills. Experience with in vivo single unit recordings and/or in vivo imaging and signal analyses is very welcome. Qualified applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Neuroscience or related field.
Candidates should submit their CV and a one page cover letter outlining their research interests, along with contact information for at least two references, to Dr. Cyril Herry ( Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Cyril Herry une nouvelle fois à l'honneur !

Cyril Herry est le lauréat 2017 du Prix Madame Victor Noury décerné par l'Académie des Sciences. Ce prix a pour vocation "d'encourager le développement de la science dans ses manifestations les plus diverses"... Exactement ce que fait Cyril !
Pour mémoire, Cyril avait déjà obtenu le prix de l'Académie de Médecine dans la catégorie "avancée thérapeutique" en 2016.
