Natbrainlab 11th Workshop including advanced Spherical deconvolution tractography

Dear all,
The 11th Neuroanatomy and Tractography workshop will be held in London on the 28-30 November 201
2. This workshop intends to help scientists to develop and optimise strategies for DTI datasets analysis, tractography and advanced spherical deconvolution tractography

The number of participants is very limited for allowing 1:1 tutoring. 

The participants will be able to work on their own datasets and receive advice from…

Disorders of Consciousness: How Should Clinicians Respond to New Therapeutic Interventions?

New tools have confirmed high rates of misdiagnosis of patients with chronic disorders of consciousness, such as the vegetative state. An increasing number of patients' families wish to use these novel techniques for diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. An international team of researchers, including Dr. Éric Racine, researcher at the IRCM, analyzed the clinical, social and ethical issues that clinicians are now facing. Their article is published in the August…

Neural basis of stuttering

The neural basis of stuttering has to do with the integration of auditory information with speech-production commands. Previous studies show that stutterers’ produce a weaker-than-normal compensatory response while processing auditory feedback during speech. In this study they manipulated auditory feedback in order to see if weak compensatory responses are due to problems hearing feedback or using feedback. What they found is that stutterers’…

The role of prediction in social neuroscience (FREE ARTICLE DOWNLOAD)

Research has shown that the brain is constantly making predictions about future events. Theories of prediction in perception, action and learning suggest that the brain serves to reduce the discrepancies between expectation and actual experience, i.e., by reducing the prediction error.…

Atlas of human brain connections is finally out!

One of the major challenges of modern neuroscience is to define the complex pattern of neural connections that underlie cognition and behaviour. Brain connections have been investigated extensively in many animal species, including monkeys. Until recently, however, we have been unable to verify their…

Labor plans for BCI/ECoG and EP available...

Specifc components (hardware and software) are needed for different fields of research. There are now three plans available which show the recommended setup for:

#Brain-Computer Interface research

#ECoG experiments

#Evoked Potential experiments

The plans give a great overview of how to equip your lab and they also show how you can use the hard- and software from gtec.

You can see which components are needed, how they are connected and how to arrange the…

Scientists Show How a Gene Duplication Helped Our Brains Become 'Human'


A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute has shown that an extra copy of a brain-development gene, which appeared in our ancestors' genomes about 2.4 million years ago, allowed maturing neurons to migrate farther and develop more connections.

What genetic changes account for the vast behavioral differences between humans and other primates? Researchers so far…

Sensory integration

This garden universe vibrates complete. Some we get a sound so sweet. Vibrations reach on up to become light, and then thru gamma, out of sight. Between the eyes and ears there lay, the sounds of color and the light of a sigh.  ~   Moody Blues…

The 2012 Brain-Art Competition

In order order to recognize the beauty and creativity of artistic renderings emerging from the neuroimaging community, we are launching the second annual Brain-Art Competition.

Countless hours are devoted to creation of informative visualizations for communicating neuroscientific findings. This competition once again aims to recognize the artistic creativity of our community that often goes underappreciated in the publication process.

We are inviting…
