Every year the Reitman family puts out a generous spread for all The Neuro’s staff continuing a legacy of celebrating care and dedication

In 1947 Ruth Reitman had a difficult surgery at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital – The Neuro, at McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre. Grateful and impressed by the treatment and care she received, Mrs. Reitman arranged a Christmas party for neurosurgeon Dr. William Cone, his residents and nursing staff. This small gathering quickly grew into the annual Reitman luncheon.

 Study has far-reaching implications for unconscious role of infant experiences on adult development

An infant’s mother tongue creates neural patterns that the unconscious brain retains years later even if the child totally stops using the language, (as can happen in cases of international adoption) according to a new joint study by scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital - The Neuro and McGill University’s Department of Psychology. The study offers the first neural evidence that traces of the “lost” language remain in the brain.

<p>New study examines link between brain cortex and food buying habits</p>
<p>MONTREAL: Will that be a pizza for you or will you go for a salad? Choosing what you eat is not simply a matter of taste, conclude scientists in a new study at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital of McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre. As you glance over a menu or peruse the shelves in a supermarket, your brain is making decisions based more on a food’s caloric content. </p>

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a devastating fatal disease of the nervous system that kills two to five Canadians every day. On September 19th and 20th, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro), at McGill University and the McGill University Health Centre will host the 10th Annual ALS Symposium of the Fondation André-Delambre. Nearly one hundred researchers and clinicians from several countries will come together to discuss recent progress in ALS research.

Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill University and McGill University Health Centre have shown that a member of the protein family known as SUMO (small ubiquitin-like modifier) is a key to why tumour cells multiply uncontrollably, especially in the case of glioblastoma. The SUMO family proteins modify other proteins and the SUMOylation of proteins are critical for many cellular processes. Identifying SUMO’s role in the cancer cell growth will lead to a new strategy for glioblastoma treatment.

An international team of researchers has discovered a significant genetic component of Idiopathic Generalized Epilepsy (IGE), the most common form of epilepsy. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by sudden, uncontrolled electrical discharges in the brain expressed as a seizure. The new research, published in this week’s issue of EMBO Reports, implicates a mutation in the gene for a protein, known as cotransporter KCC2.
