"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.

Open Science in Action: Inaugural Symposium2019-11-18

The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital)
3801 University Street
Montreal, QC H3A 2B4


To speed up discovery and impact health, we must transform our approach to science. Innovations in biomedical science and big data technology have brought hope, and are powered by a new way of doing science: Open Science. This is the concept of freely sharing research data and materials, and removing barriers to collaboration.

We welcome you to engage and exchange around Open Science in action at The Neuro and beyond.

Meet and learn from national and international experts on intellectual property protocols, ethics, patient consent and engagement, pharma, neuroinformatics, and more!

On first glance, art and the study of Alzheimer’s may not seem to have much in common. But as we’ll see, there are many common threads woven between creative expression and neurodegenerative disease.
Please join the McGill Society of Montreal and The Neuro for a fascinating evening on how researchers are bridging the gap between Art and Alzheimer's. Professor Alan C. Evans, world-renowned scientist at The Neuro, and Dr. AmanPreet Badhwar, neuroscientist and artist, will discuss how art provides a unique perspective into the better understanding of brain function.

This insightful event for McGill alumni, parents and friends will be followed by a reception with light refreshments and live music, and an exhibition of neuroscience-inspired artworks to take place in The Neuro's new Healing Garden.

Wednesday, October 236:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
