TORONTO, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Alzheimer disease already affects close to half a million Canadians, yet we still don't know the cause. With a senior population expected to approach seven million by 2021, new research and treatment options for the disease are crucial.
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is placing itself in a strong position to address the challenges of Alzheimer disease. There is good reason to be hopeful.
From brain stimulation to enhance neuro-plasticity, to the establishment of a brain bank dedicated to collecting and distributing donor tissue for research, CAMH is at the forefront of new cutting edge science promising to advance the treatment options for the millions of people around the world living with Alzheimer disease.
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is Canada's largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world's leading research centres in its field. CAMH combines clinical care, research, education, policy development and health promotion to help transform the lives of people affected by mental health and addiction issues.
