Interfaculty institutes | UNI, ULB Neuroscience Institute

(Code: ULB598)


Person in charge of the unit : BRION Jean-Pierre.

The Laboratory of Histology, Neuroanatomy and Neuropathology has a research activity mainly devoted to the understanding of etiopathogeny of
neurodegenerative diseases, essentially Alzheimer's disease and other ''tauopathies''. These studies are performed in parallel in pathological tissues and in cellular
and transgenic models with the aim to validate concepts and hypothesis resulting from observations carried out on different models. The experimental approach
is privileging the use of various neurobiological techniques and the analysis from the molecular and cellular levels to the behavioural level. Other
research activities are devoted to comparative neurobiology of brain aging, and calcium signaling.
