This Event is Free!

Recent developments and software packages have allowed Electro-Encephalography (EEG) and Near Infra-Red Spectroscopy (fNIRS) to evolve from basic and standard scalp monitoring to more advanced 3D spatio-temporal neuroimaging techniques, providing a unique access to brain activity in realistic environment experienced in everyday life.

The objective of this week's training sessions are to introduce the concepts of these modalities and data acquisition, while providing hands-on software-specific instruction dedicated to EEG and NIRS analysis. All steps, from data preprocessing and quality check to more advanced modeling consisting in 3D reconstructions and statistical analysis, will be covered.

The training sessions are geared towards students and staff interesting in learning more about the following modalities, using dedicated user-friendly software environments: 

  • Electro-Encephalography (EEG): scalp measurements of neuronal bioelectrical activity
  • Near Infra-Red Spectroscopy (fNIRS): scalp monitoring of cortical hemodynamic processes, and notably fluctuations of oxy- and deoxy-hemglobin concentrations

The sessions are dedicated to both new EEG or NIRS users, who are interested in learning more about those techniques, as well as to more advanced users, in order to introduce them interesting software solutions for their research.

Brief presentation of the software packages presented during the sessions

Please note that similar evoked related high-density EEG and NIRS data will be considered for both the EEG and the NIRS training sessions.

Autism Neuroimaging Workshop: Advanced topics and Nitty-Gritties2019-04-30

Montreal Neurological Institute
3801 University Street Montreal, QC, H3A2B4

Notman House
51 Sherbrooke West Montreal, QC, H2X 1X2


Rapid advances in structural and functional neuroimaging, together with the rise of network analytical tools, provide unprecedented possibilities to characterize the brain in autism. In this workshop we will bring together emerging and established scientists to discuss cutting-edge neuroimaging applications in the study of autism and provide hands-on guidance for their implementation.

The first part of the day will consist of lectures from outstanding junior and senior researchers and includes an interactive poster session. In the afternoon, experts will lead practical hands-on sessions aimed at teaching how to optimally implement some of the advanced analyses presented during the course of the workshop.

The morning session will be hosted at The Neuro, a site with a rich history of neuroscience and neuroimaging excellence. In the afternoon, participants can join the hands-on educational sessions at the Notman House, a technology hub in walking distance from The Neuro that provides an ideal space for easy and plentiful interactions.

Call for posters
We invite trainees to submit poster proposals that combine neuroimaging and autism. The three top abstracts will be selected for a blitz round of talks during the morning session. Deadline for abstract submission: March 30.

Early birds fees are $60 for the morning lecture session and $60 for the afternoon hands-on session. The registration cost will increase after March 30. Please note, capacity for the afternoon session is limited to 70 people.

Multi-Scale Imaging of the White Matter Neuroanatomy2019-05-17

Sherbrooke University - Longueuil Campus
150 Place Charles-Le Moyne, Longueuil, QC J4K 0A8


The white matter neuroanatomy is of utter importance for understanding the human brain's functions and malfunctions. This workshop will present the state-of-the-art imaging of the white matter neuroanatomy on data obtained with MRI at multiple scales, from structural connectivity networks to streamlines vs axonal fascicle properties and axonal microstructure.

Invited experts will present their recent work on white matter imaging, highlighting progress and limits in the problems they are tackling. The presentations will aim at engaging the discussion on novel multi-scale and multi-modal approaches to improve imaging of the white matter neuroanatomy.
