In this context, the aim of the SwitchNeuroTrail project is to decipher the mechanisms of branch formation and retraction using a spatio-temporal control of cell shapes imposed by switchable adhesive surfaces (in collaboration with Christophe Tribet, ENS-Chimie). We aim in particular to study the ultrastructure and the dynamics of the cytoskeleton at spatially controlled points of junction at axonal or dendritic branches.
