The agent will provide experimental follow-up, analysis and interpretation of the results obtained on the research topic of neural circuits of fear-induced analgesia funded by ANR. He/she will study the neuronal pathways of the periaqueductal gray matter nuclei involved in fear-induced analgesia in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord.


The agent will be in charge of animal experimentation part of small mammal. He/she will perform stereotaxic injections of viruses, optogenetic manipulations, behavioural analysis and electrophysiology in vivo.
