Clementine Bosch

Clémentine Bosch-Bouju : In 2014 I started a post-doc at NutriNeuro under the supervision of Dr Sophie Layé. The aim is to better understand the role of n-3 PUFA in brain functioning thanks to electrophysiology. She has been recruited in the lab in June 2016.

Marina Romani Perez

In september 2014, Marina Romani Perez started a post-doc under the supervision of Pr. Muriel Darnaudery. the aim is to study the impact of chronic perinatal stress and of perinatal exposition to a palatable diet on food motivation. She left the lab in december 2016.


Marie-Lise Jobin (PhD) worked at NutriNeuro lab in 2015 under the supervision of Dr P. Trifilieff. Her project consisted in the characterization of the effects of polyunsaturated fatty acids on the conformational and pharmacological modifications of the D2 receptor by using biophysics technics (fluorescence anisotropy, PWR) in collaboration with Isabel Alves (CBMN, Bordeaux).

Volodymyr Bogdanov  worked between 2013 and 2015 under the supervision of Dr Lucile Capuron in a neuroimaging project  on obese patients.

His background and research interests include human and animal neurophysiology and individual differences in perception, emotions and cognition relevant for pathogenesis of different neurological and mental disorders. In particular he worked on migraine research projects in the University of Liege (lab of Dr. Jean Schoenen) and the University of Utah (lab of Dr. KC Brennan).

He defended his PhD in the University of Kiev on the psychophysiology of individual differences in arousal and autonomic activity in healthy volunteers."
