Created in spring 2009, the CINQ (Consortium for Imagery in Neurosciences and mental health in Québec) has for mission to promote the emergence in Québec of a competitive research environment in neuroimagery for the study of neurosciences and mental health.

Every action taken by the CINQ have for goal to propose to the great area of Québec research community:

  • A forum for sharing the expertise in the techniques of neuroimagery : Magnetic Resonance Imagery (MRI), Electroencephalography (EEG), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), etc.;
  • Some scientific and technical support for preparation and conducting neuroimagery projects;
  • The organization of scientific and technical activities for promoting the neuroimagery research.

On the long term, the CINQ wants to help and promote the development of a regional research platform dedicate


  • Assist the formation of researchers, clinicians, post-docs and students from Québec regarding the acquisition and analysis techniques and methods for human neuroimagery;
  • Facilitate access to existing Quebec region neuroimagery installations for all affiliated researchers; 
  • Contribute to knowledge transfer towards clinical applications for patients showing neurological or mental health troubles ;
  • Establish meetings and seminars to promote collaboration between researchers interested in neuroimagery in Québec area;
  • Promote access to existing research support programs involving neuroimagery;
  • Promote and support the retention of human and animal neuroimagery researchers in Québec area;
  • Support the development of a local infrastructure for facilitating multimodal, translational and pluridisciplinar neuroimagery research in the Québec area;
  • Create and maintain new research collaborations between developpers of new methodologies and fondamental or clinical researchers using or willing to use neuroimagery methods in the Quebec area;
  • Promote and support the creation of strategic initiatives in medical imagery outside the framework of neurosciences and mental health.
