Grant awarded to promote collaboration between ohba and the montreal neurological institute

One remarkable property of spontaneous fluctuations in brain activity is that they consistently segregate into spatially structured networks, which correspond to the major functional systems of the brain. Over recent years groups at McGill and Oxford have been independently investigating this phenomenon using distinct approaches. However, Mark Woolrich and Sylvain Baillet (Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University) have now been awarded an Oxford McGill Neuroscience Collaboration grant to work on "The Large-Scale Mechanisms and Dynamics of Spontaneous Brain Activity". The funding is to promote the synergy between the two groups in this cutting-edge research field, and to develop common approaches to protocol design, data acquisition and analysis.
