Epilepsy Day 2017

Sun, 2017-03-26 18:04

March 26 is Purple Day for Epilepsy, a day to support epilepsy awareness worldwide

The Neuro has been a world leader in epilepsy treatment and research for more than 60 years. Indeed, the “Montreal Procedure” developed by The Neuro’s founder, Dr. Wilder Penfield, and his colleagues has become the standard operating procedure for the surgical treatment of epilepsy. The Neuro was also a pioneering institute in exploiting electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study and treat epilepsy.

Lack of joy from music linked to brain disconnection

Using fMRI data, researchers found that while listening to music, specific musical anhedonics presented a reduction in the activity of the Nucleus Accumbens
Wed, 2017-01-04 10:35
Have you ever met someone who just wasn’t into music? They may have a condition called specific musical anhedonia, which affects three-to-five per cent of the population.
 
Researchers at the University of Barcelona and the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital of McGill University have discovered that people with this condition showed reduced functional connectivity between cortical regions responsible for processing sound and subcortical regions related to reward.

Olfactory perception influenced by background and semantic information

Mon, 2016-11-21 09:48

When two people smell the same thing, they can have remarkably different reactions, depending on their cultural background. Researchers at the Neuro have found that even when two cultures share the same language and many traditions, their reactions to the same smells can be different.
