CAPnet


About Us

The Canadian Action and Perception Network (CAPnet) is a neuroscience research consortium led by members of the York Centre for Vision Research (Toronto), the Western Brain and Mind Institute  (London Ont.), Queen's Centre for Neuroscience (Kingston), the McGill Integrated Program in Neuroscience (Montreal), et le Groupe de Recherche sur le Systeme Nerveux Central (University of Montreal). CAPnet celebrates Canada's international leadership and close knit community in the neuroscience of action and perception.

The mandate of CAPnet is to promote major collaborative projects in the area of action and perception, both between the core member universities and with their academic, clinical, and industrial partners.

Most of the human brain is involved in processes related to sensation, perception, and movement control, so to study this topic is really to study how the brain works. Conversely, most disorders, diseases, and injuries of the central nervous system -currently affecting about one billion people worldwide- disrupt these processes in some way. The long-term goal of CAPnet is to understand how the brain allows most people to perceive and move in the world - and how we might help the people who have trouble with these basic functions.
