Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (MNI)

The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital is a unique academic medical centre dedicated to neuroscience. Here multidisciplinary teams of basic and clinical scientists generate fundamental information about the nervous system and apply that knowledge to understanding and treating neurological diseases. In 2007, the Canadian government named the MNI as one of seven Centres of Excellence in Commercialization and Research in recognition of our innovative and outstanding work. Visit MNI's webpage for more information. 


Centre for Research on Brain, Language & Music (CRBLM)

The Centre for Research on Brain, Language and Music (CRBLM) was established in 2011 to foster interdisciplinary research in the social and neurobiological foundations of human communication, within the domains of language and music. Our long-term objective is to develop insight into the mechanisms the brain uses to make sense out of sound, to identify new and innovative methods to facilitate language and cognitive development, to improve learning skills and to treat disorders of human communication. Visit CRBLM's webpage for more information.


Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media & Technology (CIRMMT)

CIRMMT is a multi-disciplinary research group centred at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University. It unites researchers and their students from several Quebec institutions - McGill University, l’Université de Montréal, l’Université de Sherbrooke Concordia University, Ecole de technologie supérieure, INRS and Marianopolis College. The CIRMMT community is interested in interdisciplinary research related to the creation of music in the composer's or performer's mind, the performance of music, its recording and/or transmission, and the reception of music by the listener. It is also interested in the ways in which vision, haptics and touch interact with music and sound. Visit CIRMMT's webpage for more information. 


International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound research (BRAMS)

BRAMS is a unique centre dedicated to research excellence,  jointly affiliated with the University of Montreal and McGill University. The research centre is devoted to the study of music cognition with a focus on neuroscience. Part since April 2011 of the newly created CRBLM, Centre for Research on Brain, Language and Music, BRAMS welcomes more than 35 faculty members and 100 trainees. Visit BRAMS' wepage for more information.


The Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain

Founded in June 2003, pain research at McGill University is conducted at the Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain. The Centre comprises 39 researchers from the Faculties of Medicine, Dentistry and Science. Its main goal is to bring together the McGill community of basic and clinical pain researchers to promote research that will result in cures for chronic pain. Through activities and international collaborations, the Centre focuses on new discoveries and their clinical applications that will improve the prevention and treatment of chronic pain.

Douglas Mental Health Institute

In collaboration with people living with mental health problems, their families, and the community, the mission of the Douglas Mental Health University Institute offers cutting-edge care, services, and research in mental health. The Douglas Institute uses a multidisciplinary approach to research that combines the neurosciences, clinical experience and psychosocial factors, and is based on four major themes: aging and alzheimer disease research; mood, anxiety, and imulsivity-related disorders research; schizophrenia and neurodevelopmental disorders research; services, policy and population health research. Visit Douglas' webpage for more information. 


McGill Vision Research (MVRU)

At McGill Vision Research we have the common aim of understanding how the brain processes visual information and enables us to see. The combined expertise of faculty members, each with their own autonomously-funded laboratories located within one research centre, makes this a unit with a history of strong collaborative research and a world leader in the field of visual neuroscience. Our research approaches span different areas of visual neuroscience including human visual psychophysics, animal neurophysiology and optical imaging, computational approaches, human fMRI brain imaging, TMS, and clinical psychophysics.
