Purple Day March 26 - A World Day for Epilepsy Awareness

Wed, 2014-03-26 15:28

The Neuro has been at the forefront of epilepsy treatment and research for over half a century. The “Montreal Procedure” developed by Dr. Wilder Penfield and colleagues revolutionized the surgical treatment for epilepsy, allowing thousands of patients to start new lives free of seizures. The use of electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the study and treatment of epilepsy was pioneered at The Neuro.

Sensorimotor integration for speech and nonspeech movements in children and adults who stutter

Tue, 2014-04-08 16:30 - 17:30
Goodman Cancer Research Centre, Room 501 : 1160 av des Pins ouest, 1200 Pine Avenue West
Price: Free

In this presentation, I will describe and integrate recent results from several studies examining sensorimotor functioning in stuttering children and adults. In a series of sensorimotor adaptation studies, using both speech and nonspeech paradigms, we have examined the ability of stuttering and nonstuttering children and adults to learn a new mapping between sensory and motor systems. Using a robotic device that can both measure active jaw movements and implement passive jaw movements, we have attempted to identify sensory vs. motor difficulties.

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

Abstract:

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.
