Dr. Jones provides a deep dive into the science behind sleep and sleep disorders.
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.
Technique can be used to better categorize patients with neurological disease, according to their therapeutic needs Personalized medicine – delivering therapies specially tailored to a patient’s unique physiology – has been a goal of researchers and doctors for a long time. New research provides a way of delivering personalized treatments to patients with neurological disease. […]
Mathematical modeling is key to understanding the complex processes underpinning protein misfolding and neurological diseases. Correctly folded, proteins play a central role in the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs, including the brain. Abnormal or misfolded proteins, in multiple studies, are increasingly associated with conditions such as Prion diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, […]
Alzheimer’s and dementia research just got a significant boost from a tripartite Canada-Cuba-China research collaboration. Ludmer Centre Scientific Director Dr Alan Evans is part of an international team that just received $1 M in financial support over three years to initiate the first scientific collaboration on brain imaging and neuroinformatics among leading neuroscience researchers in Canada, […]
Big-data in Dementia Research Dementias affect millions of people across Canada (right) and 46.8 million people worldwide – a number set to double every 20 years (WHO, 2015). The most common cause of dementia, late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, is not caused by a single neurological mechanism but is the product of several associated brain mechanisms influenced […]
