Laboratory of Neurophysiology

Faculty of Medicine | Erasme Campus

Interfaculty institutes | UNI, ULB Neuroscience Institute

(Code: ULB193)


Person in charge of the unit : SCHIFFMANN Serge.

The Laboratory of Neurophysiology addresses the study of the nervous system physiology and physiopathology by using an integrated approach allowing to lead
from the gene to the functions through their inactivation or surexpression in animal models by conditional transgenesis, the study of major chemical
neuromessengers and their interactions using morphological techniques of functional neuroanatomy, and the study of the modulation and plasticity of the neural
excitability and synaptic transmission using electrophysiological techniques as well as their theoretical modelling. In this line, five topics are
developed: 1. physiology of the basal ganglia system. 2. physiology of the cerebellum. 3. neurobiology of adult neural and mesenchymal stem cells. 4. the enteric
nervous systems and interstitial cells of Cajal. 5. physiology of the dorsal horn of spinal cord.
