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.

11th QBIN Scientific Day2019-03-29

4545, Queen-Mary Rd
Montreal (Qc) H3W 1W5


Remember this date: Friday, March 29, 2019

The RBIQ will hold its 11th Scientific Day on Friday, March 29, 2019 at the CRIUGM Maurice Group Amphitheater, 4545 Queen Mary Road in Montreal.

On the program, the results of projects funded by the RBIQ will be presented to us. Two students who have benefited from a training scholarship abroad will share their new learning. As every year, there will be a general meeting of the members.

For submission abstracts (N=60) go HERE. A two-hour period will be devoted to the presentation of the scientific posters of the students. Four prizes will be awarded for the best presentations at the end of the day.

Two lectures of general interest will be presented to you, followed by the 13th William Feindel NeuroImaging Lecture, given this year by Dr. Cheryl Grady of the University of Toronto.

Sleep and the Ageing Brain2019-02-27

Jeanne Timmins Amphytheatre
3801, University St., Montreal, Qc, H3A 2B4

General Public

Healthy sleep is important throughout the lifespan and becomes more challenging with age.  In this public lecture, we will explore how the brain mediates normal sleep and its importance to health, as well as how normal sleep can be disrupted and change with age and age-related pathologies.  Join us and our panel of leading researchers to learn more about the impact of sleep on the ageing brain.

1st Quebec Symposium on Neurostimulation2018-06-21

Grand Times Drummondville
530 rue Saint Amant
Drummondville (Québec) Canada


In recent decades, several techniques have been developed to stimulate the central nervous system. Today, researchers and clinicians use neurostimulation to study and better understand the functioning of the brain, but also to treat various pathologies affecting the central nervous system.

Following the success and positive comments related to our first conferences on neurostimulation organized in collaboration with the Francophone Association for Knowledge (ACFAS: Rimouski in 2015 and Montreal in 2017), we are organizing our first ever Quebec Symposium on Neurostimulation ( SQN) at the Grand Times Hotel in Drummondville on June 21, 2018. Our independence allows us to ensure the totality of the event for all of our colleagues wishing to attend our event, now located in the heart of Quebec.

This symposium offers a unique opportunity to bring together industry members, clinicians, researchers and students interested in the use of neurostimulation in neuroscience. By encouraging the presence of speakers and presenters from various fields, this initiative will allow participants to discover and appreciate several potential applications of neurostimulation, from both a mechanistic and therapeutic perspective, and to foster collaboration between researchers and industry,
