Scientific research in the field of neurodevelopment provides us with a deeper understanding of the establishment and functioning of the neural networks, especially in the brain. Neurodevelopmental disorders have multiple repercussions that often combine and exacerbate each other: autism, intellectual disability, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, specific learning disorders, motor disorders and epilepsy, that manifest at different ages. With this in mind, the GIS researchers have come together to study the specific or shared mechanisms underlying these disorders, from the very first stages of neural development through to old age. This objective must enable the emergence of the tools and expertise necessary in order to understand, act early, and prevent.
