Betting big on open science

The Neuro and its Tanenbaum Open Science Institute are committed to making its research as freely available and transparent as possible, while encouraging other neuroscience institutions to do the same.

The centenarians have their say

As McGill marked its 200th anniversary, we checked in with some of the graduates who have lived for at least half that time, to get a sense of the history they saw firsthand at the University – including war, landmark research breakthroughs and at least one snowball fight that enraged a principal.


Simulating neurosurgery

A team of researchers at The Neuro are developing a surgical simulation system guided by artificial intelligence that can accurately assess the capabilities of neurosurgical trainees during virtual surgery.


The sensational centenarian

A simple drawing exercise led Brenda Milner, PhD’52, DSc’91, to a discovery that would radically rearrange everything we thought we knew about memory.


An app that gives voice to the voiceless

Thanks to a new eye-tracking software technology developed by McGill neurologist Etienne de Villers-Sidani, MDCM’00, communication could soon become far less difficult for patients with paralysis.


Ludmer Centre takes brain research to the next level

Thanks to a $10 million investment, McGill’s Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health will launch a Global Brain Consortium of top brain research institutions. By sharing their data and methods more closely, these researchers hope to make new inroads into our understanding of mental illness and brain disorders.
