The Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics and Mental Health focuses on understanding the genetic, epigenetic and environmental influences that shape brain development including structure and function, and the risk for mental disorders.
This Centre spans the Lady Davis Research Institute/Institut de Recherches Lady Davis, the Douglas Mental Health University Institute/Institut Universitaire en Santé Mentale Douglas, and the Montreal Neurological Institute/Institut Neurologique de Montréal, all affiliated with McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Ongoing studies have collected longitudinal and cross-sectional data on many well-characterized samples from a range of tissues, and offer unique opportunities for studies of genotype–epigenotype–phenotype relations.
