Frequent genetic cause of late-onset ataxia uncovered by a Quebec-led international collaborationDiscovery will improve diagnosis and open treatment possibilities for thousands of people with this debilitating neurodegenerative condition worldwide
A new study published on Dec. 14, 2022 in the New England Journal of Medicine reports the identification of a previously unknown genetic cause of a late-onset cerebellar ataxia, a discovery that will improve diagnosis and open new treatment avenues for this progressive condition.
A one-stop-shop for brain imagingSoftware tool brings together multiple brain maps in one place
The brain is a complex organ, and no one imaging mode can catch everything that’s going on inside it. Over the years, multiple “brain maps” have emerged, each focusing on different brain processes, from metabolism to cognitive function. While these maps are important, using them in isolation limits the discoveries researchers can make from them.
Quebec study on long COVID seeking participantsPurpose is to understand post-COVID symptom evolution and impact on patients’ lives
As of Sept. 20, 2022, there have been more than 1.1 million cases of COVID-19 in Quebec. It is estimated that 10 to 30 per cent of cases will have lingering symptoms after the acute illness. This means that as many as 330,000 Quebecers may experience what’s become known as long COVID, or post-COVID-19 syndrome.

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.
Largest ever psychedelics study maps changes of conscious awareness to neurotransmitter systemsApplying machine learning to a database of testimonials uncovers how drug-induced changes in subjective awareness are mechanistically rooted in the human brain
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.
Open Science antibody characterization project receives $4-million grantYCharOS is an independent quality assessment initiative to improve research results
An antibody characterization project with partners at The Neuro will be able to expand thanks to funding from Génome Québec.
Artificial intelligence tutoring outperforms expert instructors in neurosurgical trainingMachine learning algorithms enhanced technical performance and learning outcomes during simulated brain tumor removal
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.
