Bathellier Lab

The Lab

Located in the Hearing Institute (Institut de l'Audition) a new research center of the Institut Pasteur in Paris, the Bathellier lab is investigating the computational principles of auditory and multisensory processing. To do so, we combine advanced mathematical analysis and theoretical modeling with a large array of experimental approaches, including two-photon calcium imaging, multichannel electrophysiology, optogenetics and mouse behavior.
