The Mourrain lab combines expertise in neuroscience, genetics, epigenetics, developmental biology and engineering to:

Understand why we sleep and how sleep changes our synaptic connection to improve our cognitive performance.

Unravel synaptic deficiencies in neurodevelopmental (Fragile X syndrome, Autism) and neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s) as well as during normal aging.

Uncover genes and processes important for neuronal regeneration to replace dead or deficient tissue in the brain including retina.

Push further our understanding of gene regulation and how non-coding SNPs can be responsible for human diseases.
