Visiting Researcher (Osler Travel Grant): Autumn 2016, Spring 2017
Julia Nantes was a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholar and PhD candidate in the Integrated Program in Neuroscience at McGill University. Her work in our group was to investigate the neurophysiology of anti-NMDA receptor mediated encephalitis, in collaboration with Sarosh Irani. Julia used ultra-high field MR imaging and spectroscopy to investigate the pathophysiology of the disorder.

Visiting Clinical Fellow from University of Göttingen
Dr Christiane Weinrich was a visiting clinical fellow, co-mentored by Prof. Peter Brown. She is primarily interested in the role of oscillatory activity in underpinning functional connectivity in the brain, and how pathological changes in these affect functioning in Parkinson’s Disease.
During her time here she performed an experiment using fMRI to study the effects of tACS in healthy controls, showing subtle and important changes in connectivity patterns during beta frequency stimulation. Her results are currently being written up for publication.
Visiting Fellow from University of Munich
Paul Reidler was a visiting fellow in the lab. He is primarily interested in combined EEG-MRS techniques, and while in the lab performed a study investigating GABA changes during naps in the scanner. His visit forms the basis of an on-going collaboration with Dr Keeser (University of Munich).
