NeuroDataScience - ORIGAMI lab: We are a research group at the Montreal Neurological Institute. Our aim is to produce and promote open and reproducible neuroimaging research, with a focus on neuroimaging data science and neuroinformatics. We develop methods and tools to best analyse neuroimaging and genetics data, and strive to produce and foster more reproducible and replicable science in our field, and more generally in the life sciences.
