By combining cutting-edge high-resolution optical stimulation techniques with novel appearance-based psychophysical methods in a large range of behavioral experiments, we aim to uncover the elemental building blocks of visual space perception.
i3/šamnum: Vegetable oils and animal fats in early urban societies of Syro-Mesopotamia – production, distribution and usage – i3.MesopOil
Vegetable oils and animal fats in early urban societies of Syro-Mesopotamia – production, distribution and usage
For effective therapy of neurodevelopmental disorders, neonatal screening is necessary. The NEOPRENE project proposes that tactile perception and attention are the first foundations of cognitive development and that atypical touch processing at birth exerts a pervasive detrimental influence leading to syndrome-relevant, not syndrome-specific, impairments.
Effect of Titanium dioxide dietary particles on host-gut microbiota interactions: role of aryl hydrocarbon receptor and impact on the development of metabolic disorders and colon cancer. – TitADiet
Particles of TiO2 are used as colorant (additive E171) in several processed food. The aim of TitADiet is to explore the consequences of chronic oral exposure to E171 in the occurrence and/or the aggravation of metabolic disorders and intestinal tumor lesions. A link with intestinal dysbiosis and its consequences on the intestine, immunity and metabolism will be evaluated.
Bio-inspired charge photoaccumulation: from the design of novel systems to multielectronic redox process optimization – PhotoAcc
Photosynthesis is a fascinating source of inspiration to design innovative molecular devices for the conversion and storage of solar energy. Applications of interest however rely on multielectronic catalytic processes whereas light-driven processes are single-electron events in essence. Nature perfectly masters this apparent mismatch thanks to specific cofactors, able to accumulate and then to relay two electrons at a time by coupling these processes with proton transfers.
Ugi Reaction for the Selective Bioconjugation of Native Proteins.
We demonstrated that Interleukine-7 (IL-7) is produced in infected mucosae and is able to trigger local expression of chemokines when administered either locally or systemically, leading to massive immune cell homing into targeted mucosae. We hypothesize that locally delivered IL-7 may act as an efficient adjuvant to trigger mucosal immune responses to vaccines.
Gender and health inequalities in CONSTANCES: social determinants of the male-female differences in healthy ageing – GINCO
Social determinants of healthy ageing in women and men<br /><br />The GINCO project focuses on the social determinants at the intersection of the professional, social and family spheres. Using data from the CONSTANCES cohort, it is based on a life-course approach to health determinants. Its aim is to suggest levers for action, particularly through public policies, to improve the chances of ageing in good health and reduce inequalities.
Hidden and pre-conscious, the vestibular sense does not pertain to the five traditional Aristotelian senses. Yet, it impacts human development, perception, action, and cognition.
A climatic or tectonic control on early primate dispersal? A new approach to investigate invasive species dynamics in deep time – DISPERSAL
Recent studies show that the distribution of many modern terrestrial species can be explained by a handful amount of large-scale dispersals and that these episodes will likely become more numerous und
