Lifespan Network Neuroscience Symposium: Examining the trajectory of human development in health and disease
The Neuro will host the Lifespan Network Neuroscience Symposium, a pre OHBM event that will take place on July 20, 2023. The one-day symposium will bring together a panel of international experts to share advances, innovations, and emerging ideas in network neuroscience from a lifespan perspective. Emphasis will be on developing recommendations and framework protocols to optimize network neuroimaging acquisition techniques, analysis, and modelling approaches. Speakers will also discuss the role of network neuroscience in understanding cognitive function and dysfunction across the lifespan as well as highlight opportunities for translational research and intervention.

The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital is at 3801 University Street, north of Pine Avenue West, on the McGill University campus opposite the former Royal Victoria Hospital.
Montreal is served by highway Routes 10, 15, 20 and 40, and by Greyhound Bus, ViaRail and the P-E-Trudeau airport. In the city, bus and metro service is provided by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM).
A wheelchair accessible entrance is on University Street north of the main entrance. Another wheelchair accessible entrance is in the loading area behind the building: to enter the loading area, turn into the driveway south of the main entrance. Please note, there is no parking in the loading area.
Parking near the MNI is sometimes difficult. There are parking meters on University Street and a parking lot north of the main entrance. To enter the lot, turn right into the driveway toward Molson Stadium.
There is a taxi stand on University Street across from the main entrance. You may call a cab from the free taxi phone in the main lobby near the Security Desk.
Access by Public Transportation (STM website)
There are four bus stops within walking distance:
- Bus 144 stops at Pine Avenue and University Street
- Bus 356 stops at Sherbrooke Street and University Street (Nightbus)
- Bus 107 stops at Pine Avenue and Docteur Penfield
- Bus 24 stops at Sherbrooke Street and University Street
Take the Metro Green Line to the McGill station. Walk north on University Street and cross Pine Avenue. The main entrance is on the right, past the flags.
Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre
- Enter main lobby turn left and go down the hallway to the end.
- Turn right and go down the second hallway until you see another hallway on the left.
- This hallway leads to the Jeanne Timmins Foyer.
