    Functional study of monoaminergic transmission

    video25-75927Video of the event (restricted to Paris descartes members).

    Vesicular monoamine transporter (VMAT) allows vesicular uptake and accumulation of dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline in the presynaptic compartment. We knock downed VMAT selectively in subpopulation of neurons to block neurotransmission and investigate dopamine and noradrenaline roles in degeneration of dopaminergic neurons and chronic stress, respectively.
