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.
We published a new paper with the Bouvier lab demonstrating that it is possible to image deep brainstem neurons of the motor system using Inscopix head-mounted microscopes to monitor the activity of genetically identified neurons during locomotion. This revealed an unexpected complexity in the fonction of genetically identified circuits. Bravo to Joanna Schwenkgrub for this tour de force.
Summer school in Bertinoro (Italy) on the links between Deep Networks and the brain. Registration closed, and unfortunately postponed to June 2021 due to Covid19.
