CRNL presentation


The Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL) bring together the multidisciplinary expertise of ~450 members to decipher brain organization, cognitive functions, mental states, and related brain disorders.

The neural substrates of brain functions, including perception and action, attention, memory and learning, sleep and vigilance, emotion and social cognition, are investigated along two entwined strategic directions: from genes and cells to behavior and cognition, and from bench to patient.

Aiming at a comprehensive understanding of these complex brain functions, a multiscale integrated approach is pursued in animal models and humans, covering many facets in the field of Integrative, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience. Our aim is to link this knowledge with the production of new diagnostic markers and innovative therapies.

Currently the CRNL is structured in 14 teams and 9 platforms located in the Lyon East Hospital Pole, a unique site combining medical care, basic and clinical research, and high-tech technological platforms. Nine teams and 6 platforms are hosted in the "Neurocampus Michel Jouvet" building  since Feb. 2019.
