McGill partners with leading Swiss neuroscience research group
Date:10/4/2010

and Konrad Akert.

McGill's history as a leader in neuroscience research, from the legendary Wilder Penfield's establishment of the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, is also widely known. Its pioneering contributions are exemplified by Penfield's maps of the sensory and motor cortices of the brain; Donald Hebb's hypothesis of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity; Brenda Milner's work on the mechanisms of memory; Juda Hirsch Quastel's studies in neurochemistry; Heinz Edgar Lehmann's pharmacological treatment of schizophrenia; Theodore Sourkes's proposal of dopamine replacement therapy in Parkinson's disease; Kris Krnejevic's work in chemical transmission; Ronald Melzack's "gate control" theory of pain and Albert Aguayo's demonstration of the potential capacity for re-growth of CNS axons, to name a few.

"This is a very exciting opportunity for us," Dr. Quirion said. "The Swiss neuroscience research centre is at the forefront of where we are headed in better understanding the brain and the central nervous system. Together with our interdisciplinary Brain@McGill program, we will have the opportunity to make significant advancements in research that will end up improving the lives of millions around the world."
