The Hotchkiss Brain Institute Trainee Organization (HBITO) is an organization of postdoctoral and graduate students supervised by members of the HBI. The HBITO aims to facilitate and foster stronger interactions between trainees while shaping their educational environment. We accomplish these goals by hosting world-renowned speakers, organizing events to celebrate the achievements of HBI trainees, and playing an active role in the education of our community.

- Neuro 0 gives new neuroscience students a review of basic neuroscience concepts, as well as an introduction to topics covered in the Neuro 1 course. This year the event will be held after the first Neuro 1 class, on September 9 from 11am – 4:30pm in HSC 1405B. Topics covered will range from nervous system cell types and neuroanatomy to synaptic physiology and neurodevelopment (see schedule). This year Neuro 0 will branch away from purely scientific talks, with additional presentations from senior graduate students discussing program requirements and life as a neuroscience graduate student in Calgary. Refreshments and a BBQ lunch will be provided during the event. As a reminder, this event is compulsory for all new neuroscience students (eg. any students who started their program between January – September 2014), although all others are welcome to attend.
- The Mathison Centre for Mental Health Research and Education has started a journal club relating to Mental Health and Neuroimaging. The purpose of this journal club is
to share with other members of the Mathison Centre and guests new research which is
relevant to their area of study (neuroimaging, clinical research, epidemiology,
neurology) and to learn skills in critical appraisal of the literature. The journal club meets the second Wednesday of every month, from 12:00 to 1:00, in the Rose Room
(TRW building, 3rd floor) but this can vary. Any person interested in join should email Emilie Magaud at emagaud[at]ucalgary.ca.
