Launch of the Short-term

Research Missions Québec-Cuba Program 2019-2020

We are a High Tech Center committed with the protection of the Nation Mental Capital, which focuses its work to research in the field of neuroscience and the sustained development of Neurotechnology

We have among our main objectives:

  • Perform, organize and conduct research in the field of neuroscience, from molecular and genetic levels to systematic levels and their interaction with environmental and social factors.
  • Epidemiological studies and develop new methods of early detection related dementias and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Develop methods for diagnosis and epidemiological studies on disorders of learning and behavior in school.
  • Coordinate the National Cochlear Implant Program for deaf and deaf-blind patients.
  • Develop new processing methods including neuroimaging brain electrical tomography methods of image fusion of different modalities (e.g. MRI and EEG) and methods to study brain connectivity.
  • Manage the national network of Clinical Neurophysiology laboratories, as well as health and education programs related to neuroscience.
  • Provide technology transfer services or products derived from our research
  • Provide training services and training through postgraduate courses, doctoral, masters and other academic activities in fields related to neuroscience.
  • Design, implement and conduct clinical trials related to research and neuroscience products.
  • Develop and produce medical equipment, specialized software and other resources for the neurophysiological diagnosis.

Who are we?

1     Our origins
The genesis of the Cuban Neurosciences Center (CNEURO) dates back to 1969 when the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNIC, for its acronym in Spanish) created the Department of Neurophysiology in collaboration with renowned foreign experts as Bjorn Holgrem, Ruth Urba, Thalia Harmony and Roy John.

3     Who are we
The Cuban Neurosciences Center, CNEURO, began as one of the first groups in the world that used computers for the analysis of the brain electrical activity. It is today one of the institutions dedicated to basic and applied research, as well as the development of high technology for the diagnosis and intervention of problems related to mental health
