Yves de Koninck

His research focuses on the physiological, pharmacological and anatomical bases of synaptic transmission, with a particular emphasis on cellular substrates of pathological conditions in the Central Nervous System (CNS). Recent work focuses on the synaptic mechanisms in the sensory spinal cord and their plasticity during development and in experimental models of chronic pain, on the synaptic changes in the neocortex during ageing and Alzheimer’s disease, and on the impact of synaptic activity on the computational properties of neurons.

This research is done using a wide array of approaches, including electrophysiological recording in vivo (micro-optrodes) and in vitro (patch clamp in slices), multiphoton and other non-linear imaging techniques, time-resolved fluorescence microscopy, in vivo optogenetics, tissue-based biochemical analysis, neural tracing and immunocytochemistry, and computational approaches.
