Learning how to work openly and collaboratively are becoming increasingly important [not to say necessary] aspects in research. Furthermore, analyzing complex bioimaging data requires knowledge in biology, statistical modeling and computational tools, and adopting good research practices early on is key for success. The Montreal BrainHack School was founded based on these premises by neuro-enthusiasts.
Samuel Guay is a PhD student in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Université de Montréal. He investigates the long-term effects of sport-related concussions in young and old athletes using a variety of neuroimaging techniques. He contributes to this blog because he thinks disseminating science by means other than peer-reviewed papers makes it more accessible, and as an open science enthusiast, He thinks we can do better as a community!
