The 3rd Biogen Idec-sponsored meeting of MS and ALS researchers in Quebec and Montpellier France will be held at the Neuro on October 15 and 16, 2015. This meeting is co-organized by the Neuro and William Camu, Montpelier (France).
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.
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.
In a new study, published in this week’s issue of the journal Science, researchers show for the first time how the brain re-wires and fine-tunes its connections differently depending on the relative timing of sensory stimuli. In most neuroscience textbooks today, there is a widely held model that explains how nerve circuits might refine their connectivity based on patterned firing of brain cells, but it has not previously been directly observed in real time.
