Neurobinar #11 : December 14th at 1 pm on Zoom

For this last neurobinar of 2021, join us online and discover the work of Maxime Cazorla (INT), Mostafa Seblani (ISM) and Guillaume Frébourg (CRMBM/ETS-Montréal)

Want to take a break while getting to know your colleagues?

⚠ NEW SCHEDULE : Neurobinars will now take place on TUESDAY at 1 pm. 

On December 14th at 1 pm, join us online and discover the work of Maxime Cazorla (INT), Mostafa Seblani (ISM) and Guillaume Frébourg (CRMBM/ETS-Montréal). Mostafa and Guillaume will introduce their respective PhD in a cross-presentation. After a question session for PhD students, Maxime Cazorla will share with us his research on “A functional photoinducible tool to manipulate brain connections“.


A one-hour web conference in 2 parts: two PhD students will give a 10 min cross-presentation of their PhD work. After 5 min of questions, they will hand over to a researcher, a postdoc or an engineer from the neuroscience community who will present in 20 min an accessible version of their research. Once again, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, debate on the topic of the day or simply get to know your colleague better!

The speakers on December 14th

Log in and learn more about the PhD project of Mostafa Seblani (ISM) presented by Guillaume Frébourg (CRMBM/ETS-Montréal) and vice versa. The presentation of both PhDs will be followed by the presentation of the work of Maxime Cazorla (INT). You will also have the opportunity to ask your questions and review the Neurobinar on our YouTube Channel.

A functional photoinducible tool to manipulate brain connections by Maxime Cazorla

Maxime Cazorla co-directs, since 2020, the SONIC team at the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone (INT) where he studies the principle of brain rewiring. After a PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Paris VI in 2008, then 2 postdocs at Columbia University (New York, USA) and at the Institut Curie (Orsay, FR), he specializes in the development of innovative neurotechnologies in order to manipulate the architecture of healthy or diseased adult brain circuits. By combining photoinducible molecules and brain-on-a-chip platforms, his team has recently succeeded in rewiring neuronal networks in vitro "on-demand". This innovative work has applications for the study of brain plasticity and for the development of optoelectrical strategies for medical intervention.

New targets to reduce edema and improve sensorimotor recovery after spinal lesion by Mostafa SEBLANI

I graduated with two bachelor’s degrees in both biology and philosophy in 2017.
Then I finished the neuroscience master’s program at Aix-Marseille university in 2019. My internship program throughout these years was diversified and covered several domains in neuroscience which offered me the opportunity to have more insights into neurophysiology from different aspects and on many scales.
Currently, I am a third-year PhD student, and I am working on a pharmacological approach that aims to reduce early oedema formation and to improve sensorimotor recovery after spinal cord injury in rats.
This project is supervised by Dr Jean-Michel BREZUN and Dr Patrick DECHERCHI in the team "plasticity of nervous and muscular systems" at ISM (Institut des sciences du movement)

Structural-Vascular human spinal cord characterization by Guillaume Frébourg

Guillaume Frébourg holds a Biomedical Engineering Diploma and a Master's degree in Tissue and Implant Biomechanics (AMU). He is currently working on his PhD thesis entitled "Multimodal analysis of the relationships between mechanical, structural, connective and functional alterations of the spinal cord in cervical spondylotic myelopathy and centromedullary syndrome", under the co-direction of Virginie Callot (CRMBM-Marseille) and Yvan Petit (ETS-Montreal).
