Douglas Circadian rythms, clock genes, immune response, mouse models of psychiatric disorders Our research is about the control of physiology by circadian clocks. Our work has implications for the understanding and treatment of psychiatric disorders and infectious diseases. We use a combination of in vitro, cell culture, in vivo and behavioural approaches.

Marie-Helene Boudrias

Davis House MEG, fMRI, Motor Control, Neurorehabilitation, Brain Connectivity

The main focus of my research aims to understand the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying interaction between brain areas in aging subjects and stroke patients. I use multimodal functional neuroimaging and electrophysiological techniques as well as state-of-the-art data analysis methods to measure the precise dynamics of these interactions. The general aim of my research is to identify robust and sensitive biomarkers of motor ability and in the longer term, to design subject-specific therapeutic interventions by using physical training or stimulation protocols to maintain motor function and/or alleviate age-related declines in motor performance.

Montreal General Hospital

Neurophysiology, visual cortex, computational neuroscience, machine learning

Most of my lab's projects would be more suitable for students who have at least some familiarity with computational ideas (mathematical models, computer simulation), signal processing (convolution, Fourier transforms), or machine learning (e.g. GLMs, convolutional neural networks). Experience with Matlab or Python would be especially useful. Some projects may involve electrophysiological recording in mammalian visual cortex, using multi-electrodes and/or optical imaging.

CRBLM Birth asphyxia, brain, retina, repair, newborn

The NeoBrainLab (www.neobrainlab.org) welcome enthusiastic and hard-worker undergraduate students who are interested to help us in the understanding of the causes and consequences of brain and eyes damages in sick babies. The main goals of the lab are to develop innovative strategies to prevent or repair these brain and eyes damages, and thus to improve the future of these babies. The laboratory uses clinical, basic science and translational research to understand mechanisms underlying these brain and eyes damages, and to develop new treatments that could lead to decrease brain and eyes damages in sick babies who will need it the most.

I would be ready to take an undergraduate student during the summer and cover part of the salary, the other part should be covered through a summer grant to which the student can apply, I have already applied for a Canada summer job program from the Canadian government. I have had excellent undergraduate through their honor's or research project counted towards credit and would be ready to take more, at least through the Neuroscience program, they are normally very good.

We are seeking applications from undergraduate students who wish to gain valuable experience in research through a summer internship at the Neuroethics Research Unit. The selected candidate will be involved in research being conducted to explore the ethical, clinical, research and policy aspects of neuroscience.
