The mission of the Neuroscience Thematic Research Center (NTRC – is to promote research and training in neuroscience within Université Laval’s network. 

The NTRC is an academic centre fostering active interactions and collaboration between researchers working in different areas of neuroscience, including basic neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery, psychology and psychiatry.

Its purpose is to ensure that high quality research undertaken by its members will lead to a better understanding of normal brain functioning and the development of effective therapies to counter diseases that affect this complex organ.

The NTRC is a rallying point for all neuroscientists at Université Laval and in the Quebec city area, yet it is open to everyone interested in neuroscience in Quebec and around the world.
