Regular members of the GRSNC
Founded by Professor Yoshua Bengio, Mila rallies researchers specializing in the field of deep learning. Recognized globally for its significant contributions to the field of deep learning, Mila has distinguished itself in the areas of language modelling, machine translation, object recognition and generative models.
Dr. Blunck's laboratory investigates structure-function relations of voltage-gated ion channels and their role in memory and learning using fluorescence spectroscopy that visualizes protein movement.
Dr. Cisek’s lab studies how the brain makes decisions between different actions as we interact with our world.
The NeuroPoly lab is developing new technologies in quantitative MRI applied to neuroscience (functional MRI, microstructure MRI, etc.)
In our laboratory we are interested how the primary and premotor cortices control movements and how they interact with each other. We also study their reorganization following stroke. Finally, we develop methods to manipulate or shape the plasticity in order to maximize the recovery.
The D’Avanzo lab is examining the regulation of neuronal HCN channels by membrane lipids, cannabinoids, and other proteins.
The Drouin-Ouellet lab generates brain cells from skin cells of Parkinson’s Disease patients to understand the underlying mechanisms of the disease and develop new therapies.
Our research is aimed at shedding light on the neural mechanisms responsible for controlling rhythmic motor activities such as locomotion and respiration.
Dr. Girouard's team is interested in the mechanisms regulating cerebral blood flow in health or models of cardiovascular and / or neurodegenerative pathologies such as Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Green's lab investigates how multisensory signals are integrated to create estimates of our motion and orientation in space and how we use these estimates to plan and execute motor actions in different behavioural contexts.
The laboratory of Arlette Kolta aims at defining the contribution of astrocytes to neuronal computations performed by cortical (in relation to vision) and brainstem sensorimotor (in relation to pain and to rhythmic movements) circuits.
The Legault laboratory investigates the structure-fonction relationship of RNA and RNA-protein interactions. As part of her research project on microRNA maturation, she aims to better understand the mechanisms that regulate the levels of specific microRNAs associated with Parkinson's disease.
The Martinez lab investigates the neural mechanisms of motor recovery in animal models of spinal cord injury. We also develop rehabilitation strategies, including neuroprostheses for locomotor control.
The main interest of Dr. Robitaille’s laboratory is to study the roles of glial cells in the regulation of normal synaptic functions and neuronal network and in a disease context such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Dr. Anne-Noël Samaha’s laboratory studies drug addiction, motivation and the pursuit of rewards.
The Trudeau lab is interested in the functioning of dopamine neurons in the brain, and in particular in their connectivity and their dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease
