Non plus = neither / nor (negation)

Look at these opposites:

Je vois Boris.
- Moi aussi!
I see Boris.
- Me too!
 

Je ne vois pas Boris.
- Moi non plus!
I don't see Boris.
- Me neither!
 

Note that non plus (neither) is the negative of aussi (also/too)

In French, it's actually simpler than in English for once, as you always use non plus as a shorter way to answer in the negative (i.e. neither or nor), as such:

Je ne mange pas beaucoup. - Non, moi non plus.I don't eat much. - No, me neither.
I don't eat much. - No, nor do I.

Je n'ai pas payé la facture d'électricité. Le chauffage non plus.I didn't pay the electricity bill. Nor the heating.

Elle n'aime pas la vanille. Et le chocolat non plus.She doesn't like vanilla. Nor chocolate.

Note that because plus is used in a negative context here, you don't pronounce the final "s".
