The Virtual Brain Workshop (August 7-8, 2018)

The Virtual Brain Workshop

August 7-8, 2018
Montreal Neurological Institute
3801 University St., Montreal, Quebec

Overview

Our internship partner The Virtual Brain (TVB) is holding a 2-day workshop in Montreal. TVB enables biologically realistic modeling of network dynamics using Connectome-based approaches across different brain scales.

Generate macroscopic neuroimaging signals including fMRI, intracranial and stereotactic EEG, surface EEG and MEG for single subjects. Personalized brain network models can be derived from an individual’s MRI data.

Researchers from different backgrounds can benefit from an integrative software platform including a supporting framework for data management (generation, organization, storage, integration and sharing) and a simulation core written in Python. Applications to use cases in the healthy and diseased brain are explicitly presented. 

Registration: 

First come, first served registration; priority will be given to graduate trainees who are eligible for CREATE internships. Applicants will be confirmed by the May 18 early-bird deadline (registration fee $140), and confirmed applicants will receive reimbursement from the NSERC training grant for their participation after the workshop.

To register, please email dynamics.create@gmail.com with your name, name of Create supervisor, and study level (graduate or postdoc).
