During their second year of the Master’s degree in neuroscience, our students carried out a 6-month internship in a laboratory. A real research experience! This year, our interns share their experiences with you to help you choose your future internship.
Follow our 9 students in the NeuroMarseille laboratories!

Laurie Mifsud was welcomed by Emmanuel Dauce in the BRAINETS team (Brain Networks and Learning), directed by Andréa Brovelli, at the Institut des Neurosciences de la Timone.
Alba Carceres, an international student, did her internship in Pascale Chavis and Olivier Manzoni’s team: “Adolescence and developmental vulnerability to neuropsychiatric diseases” at the Mediterranean Neurobiology Institute.
Alba’s internship was made possible thanks to a NeuroSchool / A*Midex mobility grant in the framework of the CIVIS Alliance. Do you want to do an internship in Marseille? Find all the information here.
Damien Caillol did his internship in the NOSE (Nasal Olfactory Stemness & Epigenesis) team supervised by Prof. François Feron and Dr. Gaëlle Guiraudie-Capraz at the Neurophysiopathology Institute.
Ghofrane Ismail has been welcomed in the Cognitive Psychology Laboratory by Isabelle Dautriche in the “Language” team.
Marin Dauguet did his internship in the “Theoretical Neuroscience” group under the direction of Viktor Jirsa and the supervision of Spase Petkoski at the Institut de Neurosciences des systèmes.
Maria-Laura Musella has joined Dominique Debanne’s team “Plasticity of neuronal excitability and epilepsy” supervised by Salvatore Incontro in the Neurobiology of Ion Channels and Synapse Unit.
Heidy Daumas did her internship in the “Corps et multisensorialité” team, directed by Anne Kavounoudias, and under the supervision of Mariama Dione and Rochelle Ackerley in the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience.
Guillaume Benhora Chabreaux has joined the “Stem cells and repair of the adult nervous system” team led by Pascale Durbec at the Developmental Biology Institute of Marseille.
The objective of the internship project: Myelin is a sheath produced by oligodendrocytes in the brain that protects neurons and increases the speed of nerve impulse conduction. In recent decades, a growing number of studies have highlighted the involvement of myelin in the emergence, maintenance and decline of cognition during development and normal ageing. However, its role has been relatively little explored in neuropathological contexts, in which cognitive disorders are present. The objective of the project is to investigate the possible link between myelin changes and cognitive disorders that may occur in certain pathologies such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis.
Alicia Comino, an international student, did her internship at the Center for Magnetic Resonance in Biology and Medicine in the “Central Nervous System” team directed by Dr Angèle Viola.
Alicia’s internship was made possible thanks to a NeuroSchool / A*Midex mobility grant in the framework of the CIVIS Alliance. Do you want to do an internship in Marseille? Find all the information here.
