Child Mind Institute Research Team Makes Strong Showing at 2023 OHBM Meeting

August 14, 2023

The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) – an international society dedicated to using neuroimaging to discover the organization of the human brain – hosted their 2023 annual meeting in Montreal July 22-26. The event serves as a pivotal platform for researchers, experts, and enthusiasts to come together and share discoveries and advancements in the field of brain mapping.

At this year’s event, the Child Mind Institute research team, in a remarkable display of academic prowess, was invited to make an unprecedented 17 first-author poster presentations, six oral session presentations at the main event or satellite events, and three oral session chairs or symposium organizers! A number of research team members had two, or even three presentations.

Furthermore, team members played key roles in the organization of five events at the conference, including the Hackathon, in which 11 Child Mind Institute employees participated, and an open science gala attended by hundreds of scientists. Child Mind Institute team members also hosted a workshop for the Child Mind Institute’s International Neuroimaging Data-Sharing Initiative (INDI) data set PRIME-DE. PRIME-DE (short for PRIMatE Data Exchange), launched in 2018, pools magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of non-human primates from more than 25 institutions worldwide to form the largest neuroimaging data set for non-human primates available to researchers to date.

Three Child Mind Institute research teams accounted for all of this activity: the Autism Center Research Lab, the Center for Integrative Developmental Neuroscience (CIDN) and the center for Data Analytics, Innovation & Rigor (DAIR). The Child Mind Institute congratulates and thanks each of its scientists who figured prominently at this meeting for their contributions to the field of brain mapping:

Science at the Child Mind Institute

Our Science Mission

The Science and Engineering team at the Child Mind Institute is dedicated to transforming the lives of children with mental health and learning disorders through the power of scientific discovery.

To address the growing crisis in children’s mental health, our researchers work to guide interventions by building a rigorous understanding of the developing brain — an understanding based on reproducible scientific results rather than appealing theories or anecdotal evidence.

Autism Center: Research Lab

The Autism Center: Research Lab is focused on understanding the neurobiology of ASD using brain imaging and a range of other clinical and cognitive approaches. A specific goal of the center is detecting autism-related differences in brain connectivity that emerge in early childhood, with the goal of identifying objective biological markers that can one day be used to improve early intervention efforts and the selection of treatments.
