Neuroinformatics: What is it, and how it changes the way we understand brain disease.

Are you on Hong Kong ? 

Join us at the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong and Macau to hear Dr Alan Evans talk about how neuroinformatics has become a game changer in advancing brain research.

Dr. Evans is one of McGill’s leading researchers and he is among the top neuroscientists globally.   At this event, he will discuss efforts led and supported by McGill University to advance the global adoption of a shared interoperable, open-source neuroinformatics platform, tools and data sharing. These include collaborative neuroinformatics initiatives across the globe, including China, and over 25 data-sharing initiatives across more than 30 countries, encompassing research into neurological disorders, from Autism and Alzheimer’s to Parkinson’s, and early-childhood-development studies into the origins of mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bi-polar and attention deficit disorders.
