Neuroligin-2 as a major contributor to sleep-wake regulation
Tanya Leduc, candidate au doctorat
Tanya is a PhD student in neuroscience at the Université de Montréal and is supervised by Valérie Mongrain at CÉAMS. She first got into sleep research during her bachelor in biomedical sciences. She is now in the second year of her PhD, and her work mainly focuses on the GABAergic regulation of sleep-wake quantity and quality in mice. During this talk, Tanya will present her recent data concerning the involvement of the synaptic adhesion molecule Neuroligin-2 in the regulation of individual slow waves (0.5-4 Hz) during slow-wave sleep, and in the regulation of the response to sleep deprivation.
