Journal Clubs


Weekly Synaptic Neurobiology Club in Bell Room

We started a small neurobiology journal club over the summer, with a focus on cellular and molecular neuroscience, particularly synaptic function / dysfunction. One student (or faculty member!) presents on a paper each week, or on their own research if they would like some feedback. Now that the school year has started up again, we’d like to make it more official! We are considering changing from Thursdays at 3:30 pm to another day the room is available, so please include which of the options works best for you. If you are already on the mailing list, you can still fill out the form if you’d like a say in the time switch, or email Naila directly! 


A sign-up sheet to present will be sent out once a time if confirmed. 

(Don’t worry, we will not force you to present a paper — though we will bribe you with treats and coffee at meetings and remind you that it is excellent practice!)

Alzheimer’s Disease Cross-Domain Student Group

We are a group for McGill graduates students researching AD from varied backgrounds. We meet on a semi-regular basis to learn from one another, share ideas, discuss key literature and socialize.

MNI Interdisciplinary Epilepsy Journal Club

The Interdisciplinary Epilepsy Journal Club is designed to bring together students studying epilepsy from different labs to discuss diverse topics in the field. We hope to create a friendly environment that can facilitate the scientific dialogue and social interaction among students in epilepsy research who are specialized in different approaches: basic science, MRI, PET, MEG, EEG, clinical neurology, and many more. We meet once every other week (Friday at 10am) to discuss a paper or some of our own work. All are free to join and presentation is optional.
