Morgane Le Bon-Jégo is assistant professor at the University of Bordeaux and academic co-coordinator of Neurasmus since 2020.
She is working in the team DNA (http://www.imn-bordeaux.org/en/teams/dopamine-and-neuronals-assemblies/) at the Institute of Neurodegenerative Disorders in Bordeaux. Her main research interest is to understand using electrophysiological, cellular imaging and chemo/opto-genetic approaches, the functioning and the plasticity of neural networks. Her current research focuses on the role of midbrain dopamine inputs in functional plasticity of primary motor microcircuits involved in acquisition and maintenance of motor skill learning in physiological and pathophysiological (Parkinson’s disease) conditions.
“Through my acceptance into the Neurasmus program, I was able to learn vital research and data analysis skills.”
“I joined Neurasmus in 2018, and my life and career have changed a lot since.”
