Sleep & the Ageing Brain: Abnormal and pathological sleep, Thanh Dang-Vu

Dr. Thanh Dang-Vu provides an engaging and informative lecture on the interface between neuroimaging, sleep, and neurology, and his research to investigate the neural correlates of spontaneous brain activity and consciousness, the role of sleep in brain plasticity, the pathophysiology of sleep disorders, and the clinical biomarkers of neurological disease progression.

Lucien Hardy: Thought, Matter, and Quantum Theory

Lucien Hardy is a theoretical physicist at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. He is known for his work on the foundation of quantum physics including Hardy’s paradox, a thought experiment he devised in 1992, and his widely cited 2001 axiomatic reconstruction of quantum theory that led to a surge of papers in this area. He […]

Teaching computational reproducibility for neuroimaging

Our trust in science is based on the assumed replicability of research results; however, scientific research is in the midst of a replication or reproducibility crisis following the realization that many individual findings are, in fact, not replicable. The field of neuroimaging is no exception. What does ‘reproducibility’ mean? Replication is independently repeating the methodology […]

Designing precision tools to mine DNA data

Ludmer Centre Scientific Director Celia Greenwood secured over $600K in funding for new research, Precision Medicine in Cellular Epigenomic, from the recent Genome Canada competitions.  To understand brain development, researchers need to unlock the secrets of our DNA. Currently, we can collect data on multiple aspects of DNA, but to extract meaning from the ever-expanding data trove requires the right […]
