OptoPath provided decisive arguments that convinced key partners to take up the joint challenge of understanding the neuronal alterations involved in addiction. The COCADDICT consortium was founded and obtained funding of over €700,000 following a call for proposals from ERA-Net NEURON II. Coordinated by Véronique Deroche-Gamonet, this project involves a unique combination of neuro-imaging in humans (Professor Marco Leyton, Department of Psychiatry, McGill University, Montreal), neuro-imaging in rats (Professor Rainer Spanagel, CIMH, Heidelberg University, Mannheim) and the detailed analysis of neural circuits via electrophysiology and optogenetics (OptoPath, France).
