The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital) has joined the Douglas Research Centre (DRC) and the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) in signing the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), an agreement that seeks to change how scholarly research contributions are valued in hiring, promotion, and funding decisions.
Since joining The Neuro in 2016, Boris Bernhardt, PhD, Assistant Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery, has published pioneering research on the organization and development of the healthy brain. His achievements have been recognized this week by the Canadian Association for Neuroscience, who have awarded him the 2022 New Investigator Award.
Today the Douglas Research Centre (DRC) joins The Neuro’s Tanenbaum Open Science Institute (TOSI) as a partner in research data sharing and collaboration through the adoption of a set of institutional Open Science principles.
Psychedelics are now a rapidly growing area of neuroscience and clinical research, one that may produce much-needed new therapies for disorders such as depression and schizophrenia. Yet there is still a lot to know about how these drug agents alter states of consciousness.
An antibody characterization project with partners at The Neuro will be able to expand thanks to funding from Génome Québec.
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented both challenges and opportunities for medical training. Remote learning technology has become increasingly important in several fields. A new study finds that in a remote environment, an artificial intelligence (AI) tutoring system can outperform expert human instructors.
A new research collaboration between The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital), Takeda Development Center Americas, Inc. and Roche will enable large-scale analysis of patient data to potentially find promising targets for drug development in neurological diseases.
The Neuro-CERVO Alliance for Drug Discovery (NCADD), a new partnership between The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital) at McGill University and the CERVO Brain Research Centre of the CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale, affilitated with l’Université Laval, was awarded $7M CAD in funding over three years from the Ministry of Economy and Innovation
A new study from The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital) and eight collaborating international epilepsy centers has developed a simple web-based application clinicians can use to predict which patients will not benefit from an invasive diagnostic work-up, preventing unnecessary, invasive procedures, saving time for patients and the clinical team, and freeing up overburdened
The COVID-19 pandemic has tested our psychological limits. Some have been more affected than others by the stress of potential illness and the confusion of constantly changing health information and new restrictions.
Professor Robert Zatorre has been recognized for his work by La Fondation Pour l’Audition, a research institute and hearing advocacy organization based in Paris, France. He is this year’s recipient of the Grand Prix Scientifique, which recognizes leading research into the human auditory system.
The Neuro’s director, Dr. Guy Rouleau, has been elected first vice-president of the World Federation of Neurology. The first vice-president and other WFN officers are elected by delegates from its 122 neurological societies around the world.
Diseases of the brain are among the most complex to understand and difficult to treat. Traditional research practices aren’t always sufficient to produce truly effective and novel treatments for most neurological diseases.
People with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder act out their dreams. While sleeping safely in bed, for example, they might throw up their arms to catch an imaginary ball, or try to run from an illusory assailant. Such actions are more than just a nuisance.
A new study shows that artificial intelligence networks based on human brain connectivity can perform cognitive tasks efficiently.
