The initial conditions of the Earth and other terrestrial planets were set 4.5 Gy ago during their accretion from the solar nebula and their concomitant differentiation into an iron-rich core and a silicate mantle. Accretion in the solar system went through several different dynamical phases involving increasingly energetic and catastrophic impacts and collisions. The last phase of accretion, in w ...

Synaptic scaffolding molecules control the localization and the abundance of neurotransmitter receptors at the synapse, a key parameter to shape synaptic transfer function. Most characterized synaptic scaffolds are intracellular, yet a growing number of secreted proteins appear to organize the synapse from the outside of the cell. We recently demonstrated in C. elegans that an evolutionarily conse ...

This research project is organized along three seemingly unrelated directions:(1) Mathematical Liouville gravity deals with the geometry of large random planar maps. Historically, conformal invariance was a key ingredient in the construction of Liouville gravity in the physics literature. Conformal invariance has been restored recently with an attempt of understanding large random combinatorial pl ...

The proper function of neuronal circuits in the adult brain relies heavily on glucose metabolism to ensure energy-demanding neuronal functions such as synaptic activity or long distance axonal transport. Deregulation of the energetic metabolism is strongly associated to many neurodegenerative diseases and has been linked to some neuropsychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia. However our current ...

Genetics and cell biology of K2P channels (Kelegans)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2018,

Two-pore domain potassium channels (K2P) maintain the resting membrane potential of animal cells and therefore play a central role in the control of cellular excitability. In the vertebrate nervous system, various neuromodulators promote K2P closure, which depolarizes neurons, increases neuronal excitability and ultimately affects action potential firing. Knockout studies have revealed important r ...
