DIRECTORS
KOLTA, Arlette, Director

Arlette Kolta is Full Professor at the Faculty of Dentistry, and the department of Neurosciences of the Université de Montréal. She uses electrophysiological, neuro-anatomical and behavioral approaches to evaluate the role of spindle primary afferents in the development of chronic muscular pain. She is also interested in the neuronal circuits and cellular mechanisms involved in generating the rhythmic motor pattern for mastication and the potential role of neuron-glia interactions in rhythmogenesis.
