Through community engagement, education, and knowledge transfer, the #KrembilNeuroinformatics continues to advance its position as a leader in supporting global knowledge sharing through KCNI-led initiatives. Keep up to date with all KCNI events and subscribe to our mailing list.
Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics Speaker Series
Our monthly series is designed to highlight research topics, share knowledge and spark conversation among leading scientists and research institutions worldwide in the field of neuroinformatics, computational neuroscience and psychiatry.
The Cognitive Network Modelling team, at the Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics, led by Dr Andreea Diaconescu, presents a multi-day educational series on Dynamic causal modelling (DCM) as a class of models for examining effective connectivity in the brain.
The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics hosts its annual open house to share its achievements, contributions of the team, collaborative efforts across clinicians and research, and the Centre's future direction.
The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics is excited to offer a five-day intensive project-based learning week where trainees will learn hands-on techniques for integrating multi-scale neuroscience data. This course is designed to introduce participants to the concepts and methods behind psychiatric neuroinformatics - encompassing genetics, brain structure and function, and cognition. In addition, participants will uncover the links between modalities of human genomics, neuronal electrophysiology, structural and functional neuroimaging, and observed behaviour that KCNI scientists are integrating through a series of virtual modules and a group-based project using real-world data types to study mental illness.
In-person Project Week: July 4 to 8, 2022, from 9 am to 5 pm daily.
The 2021 edition of the Brain Connectivity Workshop, a global event sponsored by the Krembil Foundation, explored the question, “What does the mind think of the brain?” Topics focused on consciousness and cognition, looking at the relationship between anatomical connectivity, brain dynamics, and cognitive function. Dr. Sean Hill helped organize the conference and he ran a workshop about the link between brain connectivity, excitability, cognition, and sleep. Dr. Andreea Diaconescu also delivered an educational session on Modelling Abnormal Beliefs using Bayesian Inference.
The Sunrise Challenge presented by Sun Life invites Canadians to wake up with the sun for 5 days (May 30 to June 3) while raising vital funds for CAMH. By rising together and rallying our friends, family, and co-workers behind the cause, we can change the way the world sees and treats mental illness.
