Project Overview

Huntington disease (HD) is an inherited disorder that causes brain cells to die and impacts approximately 1 in 7000 Canadians. A person with HD experiences worsening psychiatric, motor, and memory impairments. While there is still no cure for HD, gene therapies have shown promise and entered clinical trials with the…

Project Overview

Our ability to learn is directly proportional to our ability to detect the difference between a prediction and its outcome. Reinforcement learning theories, which are widely used in neuroscience and machine learning, are based on this idea that learning only happens when a context falsely predicts an outcome, otherwise learning…

Project Overview

Epilepsy is a debilitating disease affecting 1% of the world’s population. It is characterized by an enduring propensity to recurring seizures. One of the cornerstones of the diagnosis and management of epilepsy is the electroencephalogram (EEG). The EEG is a recording of the brain’s electrical activity, typically for 30-minutes, and…
