We are fortunate to welcome Dr. Boris Bernhardt as BIC core Faculty Member as of August 1, 2016. Boris is a new Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at McGill and a member of the Epilepsy research group at the MNI. He obtained his PhD in Neuroscience at McGill in 2011 and carried out postdoctoral studies at the Max-Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. Boris heads the newly-founded Multimodal Imaging and Connectome Analysis Lab at the BIC. The research is centered on the development of integrated analysis approaches to characterize neuroanatomical variability and its relation to function and behaviour in healthy and diseased populations, particularly epilepsy and autism spectrum conditions. The work employs multimodal neuroimaging, task-based assessments of cognitive and affective functions, as well as statistical modelling and pattern learning.
Again, a warm welcome and our very best wishes to Boris!
