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.

Open Science in Action: Inaugural Symposium2019-11-18

The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital)

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.
