NEW ANIMAL MODELS TO UNDERSTAND THE BRAIN

15 mai 2017 - 8h45- 17h00
Salle de conférence du Centre Inra Val de Loire
37380 Nouzilly

This symposium will present new insights on neurophysiology and in vivo neuroimaging in sheep and pigs. These animals present serious advantages compared to rodents, because in addition to their larger size, their brain is gyrencephalic. Therefore, sheep and pigs are interesting alternative to non-human primates, even more with in vivo imaging tools that are now available to investigate such large animals. By this way, it is possible to perform longitudinal studies to investigate the impact of environment on brain development, these animal models offering new ways for preclinical and therapeutic investigations.
The aim of this symposium is to demonstrate how these animals are suitable experimental models to perform preclinical studies in alternative to non-human primates. Parkinson disease, stroke and brain development will be illustrated.
