In the morning of each day (2-3 days per week, recently), we have a short discussion on papers recently published and closely related to our research, avec du café et des croissants. (Spontaneously started in June 2016)

Papers to be discussed:


Iino et al. (2020) Dopamine D2 receptors in discrimination learning and spine enlargement. Nature in press
