Harnessing physiological signals to enhance the personhood of non-communicative individuals

Tue, 2014-03-18 14:00 - 15:30
Goodman Cancer Research Centre, Room 501 : 1160 av des Pins ouest, 1200 Pine Avenue West
Price: Free


Quality of life and definitions of death are both often based on the concept of personhood – a status given by one human being to another as a result of their relationship and successful interaction. Unfortunately, this important attribute is frequently not given to individuals who do not have the ability to communicate or to interact with others. My research is concerned with enhancing the quality of life of non-communicative persons and their caregivers by using novel technologies to reveal and elicit signs of their personhood.

The dynamics of eye movements and attention during reading

Thu, 2014-03-20 13:30 - 15:00
Goodman Cancer Research Centre, Room 501 : 1160 Pine Ave. West, 1200 Pine Avenue West
Price: Free


Differences between languages and how they are written give us unique opportunities to address three controversial issues in eye-movement control during reading. The three issues are (1) whether the predictability of the next word influences fixation durations before the eye gets to the word; (2) whether we can get the meaning of words before we look at them; and (3) whether information other than initial letters and word length of the next word influence where we send the eyes.

Linear Mixed Models Workshop, using R software

Sat, 2014-03-22 (All day)
Arts Building : Arts-Ferrier Computer Room, 853 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0G5
Price: Free

To register for this workshop (open to the academic community having some experience with R): please go to http://www.crblm.ca/events/linear_mixed_models_workshop

Linear Mixed Models (LMMs) are increasingly replacing traditional F1/F2-mixed-model/repeated-measure ANOVAs (rmAOVs; i.e., designs with both between- and within-subject/item factors, e.g., Kliegl, Risse & Laubrock, 2007) or repeated-measures multiple regressions (rmMRs; e.g., Kliegl, 2007) for statistical inference about experimental effects on fixation durations or response latencies.

Montreal scientists play key role in long-term international study

Rate of change in the thickness of the brain’s cortex is an important factor associated with a person’s change in IQ, according to a collaborative study by scientists in five countries including researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital – The Neuro, at McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre.
