Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Intervention

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Toronto, Ontario
What the facility does

Clinical research program looking at novel brain-stimulation treatments in treatment-resistant disorders

Areas of expertise

The Temerty Centre is home to one of the world’s most talented concentrations of clinicians and researchers working to develop and perfect non-invasive brain-stimulation treatments for people with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other disorders of the brain and mind. Here, next-generation techniques are producing physiological changes in the brains of people with serious and persistent mental illness, effectively relieving symptoms with significantly fewer side effects.
