Centre for Research in Neuroscience
Welcome to the McGill Centre for Research in Neuroscience!
The CRN provides training to students toward an MSc or PhD, and to postdoctoral researchers and MDs for careers in research.
Recent CRN News
- New findings from Antje Kroner and the David lab show how macrophages become polarized upon spinal cord injury. See "TNF and increased intracellular iron after macrophage polarization to a detrimental M1 phenotype in the injured spinal cord." Neuron, Sept. 3, 2014.
- Congraulations to Mahmoudreza Ramin and the Rao lab for their recent publication in Molecular Brain titled, "Aggression and social experience: Genetic analysis of visual circuitry activity in the control of aggressiveness in Drosophila." August 13, 2014.
- Recent work from Hsiao-Han Hsieh and the members of the Rao lab provide insight into the role of Semaphorin reverse signaling in the developing visual system. See, "Control of axon-axon attraction by Semaphorin reverse signaling. PNAS, August 5, 2014.
- A new study published and highlighted in the journal Neuron by Dr. Masha Prager-Khoutorsky in the Bourque Lab reveals how osmosensation is controlled by a microtubule-TRPV1 interaction needed for mechanotransduction. "Unique Interweaved Microtubule Scaffold Mediates Osmosensory Transduction via Physical Interaction with TRPV1." August 6, 2014.
- Congratutions to Ariane Gagnon and other members in the Bourque Lab for their recent work published in The Journal of Physiology on understanding how spike clustering in supraoptic nucleus neurons of the hypothalamus are regulated by NMDA and neurotensin receptors.
