Welcome to the Centre for Neuroscience!
The Centre for Neuroscience at the University of Alberta incorporates researchers and students across the entire span of neuroscientific research. While our members have diverse research interests, they are all united by a common goal: To drive forward our understanding of how the nervous system works. The nervous system remains one of the great scientific mysteries, and an understanding of its function has implications beyond biology and health and into the very foundations of human society.
Neuroscience Research Day 2014
Monday March 10, 2014 is the date to save for the celebration of Student Research in Neuroscience!
This year’s keynote lecturer for Neuroscience Research Day is Dr. Lawrence Steinman, from the Stanford School of Medicine. Dr. Steinman is a professor of neurology and neurological sciences, pediatrics, and genetics. He is a premier authority on genes and molecules that effect inflammation in the nervous system and in 2011 was awarded the Charcot Prize for Lifetime Achievement in MS Research.

"The consequence of our findings is that we are providing evidence for the need for clinicians to log birth weights of their patients when assessing health,” said Yves Sauvé, team lead and Centre for Neuroscience member.
