Three main axes guide the actions of the DIM C-BRAINS in favor of neuroscience and cognitive science. Each axis corresponds to a major scientific challenge and brings together a community of research teams with specific scientific questions and programs, different methodologies and technological needs, while working towards a common goal: the understanding of the brain, its diseases and cognition.
Axis 1: Genomics, human cells, reprogramming and neuro-organoids
Axis 2: Quantitative approaches to the exploration of behaviour and cognition
Area 3: Neural networks, modelling and artificial intelligence
The DIM C-BRAINS aims to structure and federate research and innovation in the fields of neuroscience and cognition in Île-de-France. To this end, the C-BRAINS IMG wants to set up networks of platforms to participate in the effort to bring communities together by encouraging the pooling of equipment and know-how and by providing training and information within the C-BRAINS IMG. To implement the actions of these structuring projects, a Committee has been set up with representatives of the main platforms in Ile-de-France.
