De Koninck will be recognized for his work in the development of internationally renowned, transdisciplinary training initiatives in neurophysics and neurophotonics that have provided hands-on training for numerous students and postdoctoral fellows.


Join us to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Society for the Neurobiology of Language, August 16-18, 2018 at the Centre des congrès de Québec


On July 8, the Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) de la Capitale-Nationale participated, for the 3rd year, in the Défi Entreprises, which took place at the Pointe-aux-Lièvres park. More than 250 employees of the CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale participated in one or the other of the sport challenges proposed and collected donations.  The CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale received the prize for most generous organization. 


Hi all,

We are pleased to invite you to Navigate, the first summer interns day organized by CERVOLET! During this day we would like to wish farewell to all our interns that have been in CERVO for the past few months.  The goal is to introduce many of the diverse neuroscience research topics studied within CERVO to the interns, so that they can better choose their topic if they return in the future.

Laura Monetta

Congratulations to Laura Monetta who received, on May 11th, the recognition award from the Provincial Network on Adaptation-Readaptation Research.  This prize recognizes her exceptional contribution to the development of research in adaptation-readaptation and social integration, to the Réseau Provincial de Recherche en Adaptation-Réadaptation (REPAR) and her stellar career. 



Mohamed Bahdine

Congratulations to Mohamed Bahdine, who won first prize in the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Science, Action! video contest.  This award, worth $3500, recognizes the best video putting science and engineering in the spotlight to show Canadians how research is improving their lives.

In the video, Mohamed Bahdine, from Simon Hardy's laboratory, explains how he uses microscopy and artificial intelligence to develop virtual brain models that can lead to a better understanding of this complex organ.  

Patrick Desrosiers, Nicolas Doyon, Simon Hardy et Paul De Koninck - professeurs étoiles

Four researchers from the CERVO Centre, Simon Hardy, Nicolas Doyon, Patrick Desrosiers and Paul De Koninck received the "Professeur étoile" prize from the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Université Laval for their exceptional teaching work, as they received excellent student reviews. 

Congratulations to these stellar Professors!

Christophe Proulx

The neural mechanisms responsible for decreased in motivation, as is often observed in depression, are poorly understood. A new study by Christophe Proulx of the CERVO Brain Research Center sheds new light on the areas of the brain involved in motivation. Published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA, the study exposes a neural pathway that controls the motivation to make an effort.
