Dr. Coizet completed his PhD in the Laboratory of Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience (LN2C, UMR 752, University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg). He then became a post-doctoral research assistant with Peter Redgrave and Paul Overton in Sheffield (UK). His research focused in large part on the basal ganglia and related structures, especially sensori-motor structures from the brainstem. He was appointed to an INSERM permanent research position at the Grenoble institute of neuroscience in 2009. His research project focused on the anatomical and functional link between the sensori-motor structures from the brainstem and the subthalamic nucleus. In Grenoble, he established multi sites in vivo single unit and field potential recordings within this network and equipped the laboratories for all kinds of sensory stimulations (visual, audition, pain …). These electro-physiological techniques are routinely combined with neuroanatomical tract tracing and immuno-histochemistry. He took advantage of his new working environment favoring clinical and pre-clinical research to study this network in Parkinson’s disease and animal models of this disease. This research combines electrophysiology with neuroimaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging) via well-established collaborative national and international collaborators.

Dr. Cadet has obtained his Ph. D and he is a researcher and focuses on studies of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of psychostimulant addiction and toxicity. Dr. Cadet’s group has provided recent evidence that methamphetamine (METH) self-administration is accompanied with markers of toxicity in striatal dopaminergic systems. These results are consistent with the idea that catecholamines, especially, dopamine can activate neurodegenerative processes in the mammalian brain. Research Areas: Neuropeptides, Dopaminergic Systems, Neurodegnerative processes, Brain.

The research carried out by Dr. Alfonso Alfaro-Rodríguez has focused on the study of the chemistry of the brain. His studies are centered towards the search for neuronal damage mechanisms caused by neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's, brain injuries, and currently nociception. He has also dabbled in the study of several antiepileptic and antidepressant drugs over the central nervous system. The role of monoamines like serotonin and acetylcholine along with several catecholamines at neuronal and molecular level in the development of neurodegenerative diseases has been a central topic of his research. The research over the mechanisms of brain damage by means of different neurotoxic pathways unchained by neurodegenerative diseases has led him to successfully explore the role of neuroprotective drugs in a myriad of animal models. With his research he has facilitated the assessment of neuronal damage and the disabilities caused by these diseases. At present, he has centered in the development of novel research protocols over the mechanisms of pain and the elaboration of diagnostic strategies for the timely diagnostic of it by employing new drugs that could improve the quality of life of patients suffering from chronic pain.
