The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto will open the doors to its new Research Imaging Centre, where PET, MRI and genetic imaging will be focused on the study of addictions and mental illness.

Over the past two years, CAMH's research facilities have undergone development and construction to accommodate a brain imaging capacity, adding 5,700 square feet to its research wing. From depression and schizophrenia to Alzheimer's disease and addictions, the new facility will allow CAMH scientists to combine technologies in novel ways to learn more about how neurological and mental disorders affect brain function.
