Research Interest:

Functional, anatomical and physiological study of hyperacusis on an animal model, using an animal model of migraine and an empiric model of hyperacusis (sodium salicylate) we want to understand pathophysiology of that disorder.

The study is based on elecrophysiological monitoring of cochlear external ciliary cells: the distorsion product of otoacoustic emissions and on auditory brainstem responses recording. Additionally, we observe hyperacusis behavioural with acoustic startle reflex measurement.

Technical expertise:

• Handling and experimentation with rodents

• Behavioural tests: nociceptive, cognitive, stress

• Microsurgery:

-          Chronic implantation of electrodes for electrophysiological measurements

-          Dural cannulation

• In vivo electrophysiological recording of cochlear activity

• Cell culture, PCR (tissue extraction, processing and quantification) and sequencing

• Immunochemistry (tissue extraction, processing and quantification)

• Optical microscopy

• Management software
