The CERVO Brain Research Centre is proud to announce that Dr. Steven Laureys has just been awarded a prestigious Canada Excellence Research Chair in Neuroscience and Sustainable Mental Health.

Dr. Laureys is a neurologist, researcher, author and lecturer with an international reputation for his research into human consciousness. With his team, he uses the latest techniques in brain imaging to study neuroplasticity and recovery from illness and brain trauma, as well as in the fields of sleep, dreams, anaesthesia, hypnosis and meditation. Passionate about the power of the mind, he has studied Buddhist monks, astronauts, entrepreneurs and top athletes.

His expertise will undoubtedly contribute to the international reputation of the CERVO centre, but will also benefit the Quebec and Canadian community through the development of new and innovative holistic care interventions.
