Cerebrum brings together a group of researchers interested in neuropsychology as well as cognitive and computational neuroscience at the Université de Montréal. Our offices are located in the Department of Psychology and the majority of our members are professors or students in this department.

Cerebrum aims to facilitate collaborations between researchers in the Department of Psychology and those from other units in neuropsychology as well as cognitive and computational neuroscience at the Université de Montréal through research co-development, joint funding applications, and the planning of interdepartmental and inter-faculty courses.

Cerebrum also aims to create partnerships between academic, clinical and industrial players to accelerate knowledge transfer in neuropsychology and cognitive and computational neuroscience in Quebec. Thus, cerebrum will eventually welcome start-up companies in its premises.

In order to facilitate scientific exchanges, cerebrum will soon offer an innovative space for group work, creation and training, the NeuroBuro.

Congratulations to Ian Charest , a newly appointed Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology at UdeM, for being awarded the new Courtois Philanthropic Chair in Fundamental Cognitive Neuroscience! Bravo Ian!

Congratulations to Sarah Provost, PhD R/I candidate in neuropsychology at UdeM, for winning the $500 prize for having proposed the name "cerebrum" for our research group. This name was selected among 130 proposals following a contest within our community. Way to go Sarah!

NeuroBuro

To facilitate scientific exchanges, cerebrum will soon offer an innovative space for co-working, creative development and training, the NeuroBuro. The NeuroBuro will be built as part of the Marie-Victorin Pavilion renovations.

In the meantime, members and collaborators have access to the proto-NeuroBuro, located in room F-460 of the Marie-Victorin Pavilion. There, you can host meetings and video conferences or simply share a meal. The room is equipped with a giant screen and a camera as well as a kitchenette.
