  1. Affiche Symposium Neurostimulation

This Event is Free!

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,

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

Scientists

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.

Registration
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

Scientists

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.
