A novel intervention for mothers of children with autism is showing great promise in reducing stress and depression among caregivers.
CAMH has a long-standing track record of pioneering new brain imaging agents. Its legacy in this field will now be powered through the creation of a new research centre, the Azrieli Centre for Neuro-Radiochemistry.
In an innovative study, researchers at CAMH have discovered brain changes linked to memory loss in people with Alzheimer’s disease. The discovery provides a new focus for exploring ways to treat or prevent dementia, which currently affects more than 560,000 Canadians.
In people with schizophrenia, the ability to interact socially can be impaired. Underlying changes to brain circuits or networks can affect social functioning. A CAMH study sheds light on how brain networks are related to different types of social interactions.
