National Nursing Week - Celebrating Excellence

The annual Neuroscience Nursing Awards of Excellence Ceremony took place May 12 as part of National Nursing Week.  The event was a wonderful showcase of dedication, spirit, determination, strength, compassion and innovation.  It was an opportunity to pause and celebrate nurses and others who have gone above and beyond this last year making the Transition Plan a reality.  We would like to recognize this year’s awardees and again thank all the staff for their hard work and dedication to patient care.

Impact of video gaming on the brain

A new study published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B by the teams of Dr. Gregory West (Assistant Professor at the Université de Montréal) and Dr. Véronique Bohbot (Douglas Institute researcher and associate Professor at McGill University and the Douglas Research Institute of the CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île de Montréal) shows that while video game players (VGPs) exhibit more efficient visual attention abilities, they are also much more likely to use navigation strategies that rely on the brain’s reward system (the caudate nucleus) and not the brain’s spatial memory system (the hippocampus). Past research has shown that people who use caudate nucleus-dependent navigation strategies have decreased grey matter and lower functional brain activity in the hippocampus.
