Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP)

The Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP) aims to bring together many of the country’s leading scientists in basic and clinical neuroscience to form an interactive network of collaborations in brain research, interdisciplinary student training, international partnerships, clinical translation and open publishing. 

Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System (LORIS)

Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System) is a web-based data and project management software for neuroimaging research studies. It is an OPEN SOURCE framework for storing and processing behavioural, clinical, neuroimaging and genetic data. LORIS also makes it easy to manage large datasets acquired over time in a longitudinal study, or at different locations in a large multi-site study.


Brain-CODE is a large-scale informatics platform that manages the acquisition and storage of multidimensional data collected from participants with a variety of brain disorders



CBRAIN is an infrastructure that connects researchers and data from all walks of science to high performance and cloud computing in an easy to manage, reproducible, and user-friendly manner.
