Research interests

Elodie's research focussed on the mechanism by which sex hormones shape the brain leading to the differentiation of male and female typical behaviours. She was particularly interested in the role of sex hormones in wiring the neuronal circuits controlling fertility and sexual behaviours throughout life.

Previous projects:

  • Unravelling the role of glial cells in fertility regulation
  • Investigating the effect of early androgen exposure in male and female socio-sexual behaviours

Clinical conditions

  • Infertility
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

Elodie has now taken up a position at Sorbonne University, France.
