Sept 2023:     Congratulations to Dr. Manesh Girn for his successful thesis defence - what an extraordinary
                        accomplishment! We look forward to your continued success and future LBC collaborations.

Sept 2023:     Welcome to our newest LBC members, Adam and Daniel! They will be joining our lab as new MSc
                        students in the IPN program at McGill.

July 2023:     Celebrating a successful week at the 2023 OHBM annual conference, hosted locally in Montréal!

July 2023:     LBC spotlight! Check out Dr. Alfie Wearn's latest publication in Brain Communications, exploring texture                           analysis as a measure of brain health for early detection of Alzheimer's disease.  

June 2023:     Congratulations to Prof. Nathan Spreng for his appointment as the new Leader of the Cognitive                                            Neuroscience Unit at the MNI.

August 2022:          Congratulations to LBC alumna Roni Setton, PhD, on her new PNAS publication in collaboration
                                 with LBC alumna Laetitia Mwilambwe-Tshilobo, PhD, and Profs. Nathan Spreng and Signy Sheldon.
                                 Their work looks at the relation between individual differences in autobiographical memory and brain

                                 function. Check it out here!

November 2022:     Dr. Nathan Spreng has been inducted into the Royal Society of Canada - congratulations on a
                                 remarkable achievement!

September 2022:     LBC spotlight! Nathalie Prenevost created digital cover art to supplement a recent study

                                  now published in PNAS by LBC alumna Roni Setton. 


Digitally illustrated by Nathalie Prenevost, in collaboration with Drs. Roni Setton and Nathan Spreng. 

“Humans recount the past in different ways. New evidence suggests that these individual differences in autobiographical memory recollection are related to resting-state functional connectivity of the hippocampus and temporal pole with regions in the default network”. This artwork was created to represent these concepts, with a focus on the hippocampus (depicted in purple) and temporal pole (in yellow). The proposed functional connectivity between these areas is represented by “electrical lines” resembling neurons. Finally, the scrapbook background was included to remind us of the real-life implications of this research on autobiographical memory. 

September 2022:    Congratulations to Dr. Laetitia Mwilambwe-Tshilobo on successfully defending her PhD dissertation!
                                 We look forward to your continued success!

2022:                        Dr. Nathan Spreng was successful in obtaining a grant from the Alzheimer's Association and the
                                 Brain Canada Foundation.
