Neuroethology: plasticity, olfaction and insects

I study animal behavior and its physiological basis in an integrative framework. I am particularly interested in insects neuroethology (behavioral and neurobiological basis of plasticity).

Previously, I worked on learning and memory in the honey bee, modeling of fruitfly's antennal lobe neural network, behavioral and neurobiological plasticity during development of mice and cuttlefish, and mechanisms of synaptic plasticity during addiction in rodents.

Currently, I am interested in the way noctuid moths such as Agrotis ipsilon integrate information from their ecosystem according to their signification (valence, impact during development) and their functions (feeding, reproduction …). In particular, I investigate gustatory perception and plasticity, using neuropharmacological tools (octopaminergic and nicotinc pathways). Besides, I am also interested in scorpions and amblypigids.

Used techniques : conditioning, behavioral studies, behavioral neuropharmacology, statistics with R.


I mainly teach animal biology (comparative anatomy and physiology, biodiversity; lecture and lab classes) for undergraduate students in life sciences (50h/year), as well as statistics for Master students (80h/years) and Neuroethology (65/h/year). I also give lectures to undergraduate and graduate student about honey bee biology, ecophysiology and ecotoxicology of insects.
