We are a dynamic research group at the Montreal Neurological Institute. We investigate how the links and interactions among brain areas support cognitive operations, complex behavior and global dynamics.
Our goal is to quantify the effects of disease on network structure and function. We use neuroimaging (MRI, M/EEG, PET) to map and model patterns of neural connectivity. Our research lies at the intersection of network science, dynamical systems and multivariate statistics. We pursue several research themes, from modeling communication processes on anatomical networks, to statistical models of network architecture and disease propagation (see Research).
We are located at the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University, the birthplace of cognitive neuroscience and home to Penfield, Milner, Jasper and others. We exchange ideas and work with our colleagues in the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre.
We are grateful for funding from Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canada Research Chairs Program (CRC) and the Fonds de Recherché du Quebec-Santé (FRQS).
