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.
A new study at CAMH has found a clinically useful way to predict who won’t develop Alzheimer’s disease, based on patients’ awareness of their memory problems.
A new CAMH study is improving care by unraveling and responding to the complexities of chronic pain in women with mental health and substance use issues.
