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.

Post-Synaptic Careers - Life after a Neuroscience Degree (A new Discussion Series with guest speakers)

Thu, 2013-03-28 18:00 - 19:30
Montreal Neurological Institute : deGrandpre Amphitheatre, BTRC, 3801 Rue University, 3801 rue University Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 2B4

What can one do after a degree in Neuroscience? 

This discussion series will address this question through informal conversations with some successful non-academics with graduate degrees in neuroscience; the series will compliment IPN’s Pathways and Connections, which is the academic equivalent of Post-Synaptic Careers. This is your chance to talk to those who were once where you are. Ask the guest speakers about the often difficult decision to leave academia and the important, but sometimes serendipitous, connections that led them to where they are now.
