Overview

The Courtois NeuroMod project originated from the laboratory for brain simulation and exploration (SIMEXP), and collaborators are located at the Centre de Recherche de l’Institut de Gériatrie de Montréal (CRIUGM), CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’île-de-Montréal, as well as the Psychology Departement of University of Montreal (UdeM). The team has grown to include individuals from various institutions, and in particular the Computer Science and Operational Research (DIRO) Department at UdeM and the MILA.

Funding

The Courtois NeuroMod project was made possible by a 6.3M CAD (2018-23, PI Bellec) donation from the Courtois foundation. These funds are administered by the Fondation Institut Gériatrie Montréal (FIGM), part of CIUSSS du Centre-Sud-de-l’île-de-Montréal, as well as University of Montreal. Courtois NeuroMod also includes support for two separate consortia, called CIMAQ (early identification of Alzheimer’s disease), and PRISME (looking for brain correlates of the evolution of symptoms in individuals with psychosis) based at the Institut Universitaire en Santé Mentale de Montréal (IUSMM).
