La semaine « Cerveau en tête » est une campagne d’information publique qui a été instaurée en 1996 par le groupe Dana Alliance (http://www.dana.org/brainweek/). Cet évènement, qui a pour but de promouvoir le progrès et les bienfaits de la recherche sur le cerveau, se déroule chaque année durant une semaine partout à travers le Canada, les États-Unis et l’Europe. La prochaine semaine Cerveau en tête aura lieu du 12 au 16 mars 2018.

"Brain Imaging and Genetics in Autism”

Richard Bethlehem, PhD

Brief bio: Dr Bethlehem is currently a Research Associate at the Autism Research Centre and collaborates with the Geschwind lab at UCLA to work on integrated Neuroimaging and Transcriptomics in order to gain better understanding of genetic underpinnings of atypical neurodevelopment. His work is funded by the Autism Research Trust, Marmaduke Sheild Fund and a Parke Davis Exchange fellowship. He conducted his PhD in Cambridge between 2013 and 2017, funded by the MRC, Pinsent Darwin Trust, and CHESS (Cambridge Home and EU Scholarship Scheme) studying the effects of oxytocin and testosterone administration on resting state and task neural activation in the typical and autistic brain.

Summary: During the talk I will be presenting our current work on integrating brain imaging and transcriptomic data in autism. I will also talk about our recent work to implement more individualised approaches to imaging analysis, specifically I will be presenting work on age-specific normalised modelling and integrative network analysis on structural brain imaging.

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,
