from Marsicano's lab will give a presentation entitled 'Sport : quand la motivation dépasse la raison'

Recent work has shown that these receptors are also present in the mitochondrial membranes of the brain where they regulate the bioenergetic processes and amnesic effects of cannabinoids. Thus, the pharmacological effects of cannabinoids derived from cannabis are partially dependent on the regulation of cerebral mitochondrial activity.

Olfaction Symposium - organized by Guillaume Ferreira, Lisa Roux & Giovanni Marsicano

Meeting room: Neurocentre Magendie Seminar Room

Olfaction has long been considered as a « secondary » sensory modality but recent discoveries highlighted its central role in brain functions. During the first session of this symposium, the neurobiological bases of olfactory learning from the early stages of life (Coureaud, Sullivan) to adulthood (Busquets-Garcia, Nicole) will be illustrated. The second session will primarily focus on the physiology of the first relays of olfactory information processing, namely the olfactory bulb and the piriform cortex (or homologous structures in Drosophila), as well as their strong interactions (Nissant, Plaçais, Martin and Wilson)
