Computational Neuroscience Workshop 2014 – Online and Timeless Material

Hello everyone!

From the feedback I had over the last two weeks and my own feelings, force is to conclude that this year again the workshop has been an exceptional occasion to acquire and share information on computational tools available to neuroscientists. (more…)

Computational Neuroscience Workshop – 2014

Flyer - Comp. Neur. 2014

Good day everyone!

Over the course of the last few months, a team of McGill neuroscience students and post-docs have been preparing talks on the topic of computational neuroscience aimed at explaining computational techniques that they are applying to their data, the results of which will be presented at the Computational Neuroscience Workshop 2014.

Computational Neuroscience Workshop, Online!

Hi guys,

Finally! After several hours of video editing and cursing (ok, it wasn’t that bad), here are the videos of the talks presented during the computational neuroscience workshop, held on May 7th of this year. (more…)

“Computational Neuroscience Workshop” you said!?!

Yes!

Several members of the CAMBAM student community, and professors associated with it, are studying in the field of neuroscience, but CAMBAM only rarely sponsored neuroscience events. It is time for this to change! (more…)

“Lennart, what do you think we do an art show with CAMBAM?”
“But Grace, we are scientists.”
“Some great art has been done by simple minds.”
Lennart, clearly out of arguments: “Ehhhm, I guess we do an art show then?!” (more…)

A Review of the 3rd CAMBAM Annual Meeting

Participants gathering together for the round table with Sensorica

Past Friday, June 8, 2012, it was time for the 3rd CAMBAM Annual Meeting. The past Annual Meetings both created a little bit of a magical atmosphere, befitting such a day that only happens once a year, and only once. Participants were invited to the McGill Faculty Club, its wooden interior speaking of prestige and privilege. Being served an excellent four course meal, I wondered if our contribution can justify such privilege, or in the end displaces little more air than the beat of a butterfly’s wing. After all, this day was primarily about scientific progress in CAMBAM, a day to rest and review our accomplishments and progress – which often takes the form of small steps, taken one at a time – so let’s focus not on dinner courses and ambiance, but on students’ and corporate guests’ contributions to a day full of progress made, interdisciplinary perspectives, and new connections.

What happened at the LBUM?

What to think about the visit of the laboratoire de rhéologie et d’ultrasonographie médicale (LBUM, http://www.lbum-crchum.com/) that took place last Wednesday? The first thing that comes to my mind is how nice these people were. For a full day, François Destrempes and a group of members of the LBUM interrupted their research to receive us and expose us the nature of their work. (more…)

UdeM’s Workshop, a warm invitation, a great day!

Workshop that took place at Université de Montréal under the CAMBAM banner.

Last week, we have been hosted by our fellows of the Department of Pharmacology of Université de Montreal. This meeting took the form of a friendly workshop during which three students have been invited to present their work and thoughts. (more…)

Clinical study on-site visit: How can applied mathematics help insulin-dependent diabetics?

Institut de la Recherche Clinique à Montreal, 10-14h, October 12, 2011

Introduction

Hi everybody, we are proud to announce the upcoming CAMBAM student event.

Ahmad, a very energetic PhD student, works on a challenging project: a control algorithm for fully automated administration of insulin in type 1 diabetic patients. After visiting him and his great team in the Institut de la Recherche Clinique à Montreal, we invite you to come as well.

Applied Mathematics gone all the way to medical devices, individual patient modelling, and clinical testing? Come and see yourself…click here to see the details: (more…)
