The neuroscience group is organized into multidisciplinary teams that study the biological mechanisms underpinning the normal and pathological functioning of the central and peripheral nervous system and the muscular system. Researchers in this field seek to advance our understanding of physiopathology and develop new treatments for deficiencies and disabilities caused by lesions or neurological, psychiatric, and neuromuscular diseases. Research themes concern neurodegenerative, neuromuscular, and neurogenetic diseases, cerebral and spinal lesions and trauma, the regeneration and reorganization of the nervous system, mental health, ophthalmology, the development of biotherapy and standardized clinical evaluation methods, and neuromodulation treatments. Researchers are very active in Université Laval’s Regroupement Neurosciences et Santé mentale (Neurosciences and Mental Health Group).
