Neuroimaging in Montreal

Since the installation of the first positron emission tomography scanner in 1975 and the founding of the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (BIC) at the Montreal Neurological Institute in 1984, Montreal has been a major international hub for research in multi-modal neuroimaging and neuroinformatics. Further consolidated in early 2000’s by the creation of the “Unité de Neuroimagerie Fonctionnelle (UNF), Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal, Université de Montréal”, the Cerebral Imaging Centre (CIC), Douglas Research Centre, McGill University, and the Prevention, Evaluation, Rehabilitation & Formation (PERFORM) Centre, Concordia University, Montreal has become a unique dynamic milieu where pioneering work in data acquisition and analyses methods, as well as their impact in advancing our understanding of the healthy and diseased brain, are recognized worldwide. The present inaugural scientific event will allow members of these four research centres to, not only showcase their new discoveries, but to learn more about the cutting-edge neuroimaging facilities available in Montreal and the new inter-institutional collaborative initiatives that have been established and are planned in the near future.
