Apr 2024: LBC had a successful conference week in Toronto, with several members presenting their work at both the SANS and CNS 2024 annual meetings!


Mar 2024: LBC Spotlight! Corina Lazarenco presents her work looking at resting-state connectivity as related to perceived loneliness in older adults at risk for Alzheimer's Disease. Great work!


Feb 2024: LBC Valentine's Special: Discussing the Free Energy Principle, a theory that conceptualizes action and perception as two sides of a single process whereby the brain learns to predict its environment


Happy holidays from our LBC family! 


Nov 2023:      Congratulations to Dr. Colleen Hughes for accepting a new position at Indiana University! Although we                                are sad to see you go, we wish you all the best in the next stage of your career! 

Oct 2023:       LBC Spotlight! Check out graduate trainee Giulia Baracchini's latest preprint looking at BOLD signal                                 variability in the human brain.

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.

May 2023:     Congratulations to PhD candidate Giulia Baracchini for receiving an OHBM Merit Abstract Award for her
                        work to be presented at the 2023 OHBM Annual Meeting hosted in Montréal!

Aug 2022:      Congratulations to LBC alumna Dr. Roni Setton on her new PNAS publication in collaboration
                        with LBC alumna Dr. Laetitia Mwilambwe-Tshilobo 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!

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

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

                        now published in PNAS by LBC and McGill alumna Dr. 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. 

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

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