collaborations, support

Convergence, Perceptions of Neuroscience, would not be possible without the involvement of our two principal partners, the Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience (BRaIN) Program from The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), and the Faculty of Fine Arts of Concordia University.

The initiative is also supported by The Canadian Association for Neuroscience (CAN), McGill University, and the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC).

Down bellow, you will find the full least of our sponsors and partners. We thank each of them for the helping to create links between Neuroscience and the Arts.

The BRaIN Program

The Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience Program (BRaIN) draws upon the world-class research being performed by basic neuroscientists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, psychiatrists, neurosurgeons and population health/evaluative researchers at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). The program facilitates a new level of collaboration, consolidating this expertise within a single research program to address research themes in key priority areas. These themes include:

  • Neural and synaptic development and function

  • Aging, neurodegenerative diseases, and other neurological disorders

  • Vision and cognitive neuroscience

  • Pain, inflammation, trauma and repair

  • Mental health and addiction.

Basic, translational and evaluative research within these areas aims to improve diagnosis, develop future therapies to mitigate genetic or acquired dysfunction, and synthesize and disseminate new knowledge into the health care system. Researchers in the BRaIN Program are primarily located at the Montreal General Hospital site of the MUHC (MGH-MUHC), at the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) and at the Centre for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE).

The Faculty of Fine Arts of Concordia University have more than 3700 students enrolled in 60 undergraduate and graduate programs in an environment that reflects the openness and diversity of contemporary culture. Committed to integrating new technologies, traditional media and historical fine arts practices, faculty members are artists, scholars and researchers who are active on the international and national stage and equally engaged in their communities.

    Canadian Association for Neuroscience    

The Canadian Association for Neuroscience promote communication among neuroscientists throughout Canada, represent the interests of Canadian neuroscientists at national and international levels, and promote research in all disciplines contributing to the understanding of the nervous system.

As a scientific association contribute to the advancement of education in the Neurosciences, provide for and assist in the dissemination to the general public of the results of current Neuroscience research and its significance in relation to health and disease, and raise funds and to provide income for the above purposes.
