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.

FINDING "LOST" LANGUAGES IN THE BRAIN

Mon, 2014-11-17 09:30

 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.

New study examines link between brain cortex and food buying habits


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.
