Eat, Drink and Be Merry! 67 years of a delicious holiday tradition

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

 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.
