Welcome !

The goal of the laboratory of neurobiology of the visual cognition is to boost vision and attention in order to alleviate visual deficits following an ocular disease, concussion or stroke. The research program aims at (1) understanding mechanisms of cortical plasticity and visual pathways, (2) slowing mechanisms of retinal damage in particular vascular inflammation and (3) potentiating residual vision at the level of the cerebral cortex following a partial visual deficit. The involvement of the cholinergic system in these processes is investigated with particular care. We work with animal model but also implement the research advances on clinical setting.
