First Public Lecture of the Consortium d'imagerie en neurosciences et santé mentale de Québec (CINQ)

When?   May 3rd 2016
Where?   Institut Universitaire en santé mentale de Québec, Québec 

The human brain fascinates you ?
You wonder how researchers can study the formidable machine that is the human brain, to understand its anatomy, functioning and pathologies?
The CINQ organizes its first public event to address these important questions. Four brain imaging experts (Philippe Després, Simon Duchesne, Philip Jackson et Pascale Tremblay) will explain the bases of the main brain imaging methods, from positron emission tomography (PET) to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and talk about how these methods are used in research. After the talks, attendances will be invited to meet and discuss informally with research teams who will be present to answer all you questions and present their research projects.

CINQ/RBIQ Summer school on brain connectivity

When?   15-16 mai 2017
Where?   Domaine Cataraqui, Québec, , Quebec City , Quebec, G1R 4H3   

Don't miss this unique event!

The CINQ and the QBIN are happy to announce their Brain Connectivity Summer School, which will take place on May 15 and 16 2017 in Québec City. The objective of the workshop is to introduce the concepts, methods and applications of functional and structural multimodal (EEG/MEG, MRI) brain connectivity, from graph theory to complex systems and resting-state connectivity. The workshop features a plenary lecture by Dr. Sabine Kastner (Princeton University) and eleven invited speakers from various fields of brain connectivity. The second day features three hands-on workshops, each introducing one connectivity analysis software (Brainstorm, NIAK and NeuroPype). Participants will be able to attend one hands-on workshop of their choice.

Sixth annual research day of the CINQ

When?   June 9 2017
Where?  Domaine Cataraqui à Québec

 

Each year, we organize an annual research day. This year, for our 6th annual research day, we have organised a unique event, which will take place on June 9th at the magnificent Domaine Cataraqui in Quebec City.

This year, the research day is organised around the theme of women in science. The Day will be launched by Mrs. Marie-Audette, University Laval Deputy Vice Rector, Research and Innovation. A conference about women in neurosciences, and more generally, women in sciences in Quebec, will be offered by Mrs. Maryse Lassonde, director of the “Fonds de la recherche nature et technologie (FRQNT)”, President of the Royal Society of Canada, and a pioneer in neuropsychological research. Mrs. Kate Watkins, professor in psychology and cognitive neuroscience at Oxford University in England, will present her outstanding work on brain imaging and brain stimulation of the stuttering brain.
Several students and professors will also present their most recent work in the field of brain imaging and brain stimulation. The research day also includes a poster session during which our members will interact with each other to discuss their most recent findings and brainstorm new ideas. The poster session is also a contest, and the best posters will receive prizes. At the end of the day, everyone is invited to participate in a cocktail to relax, exchange ideas, and meet potential collaborators in the charming scenery of the Domaine Cataraqui.
