Many people have been able to have an impact on mental health research by including the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation in their estate plans. These gifts have helped support BBRF-funded research that has contributed to:

  • FDA approval of the first rapid-acting antidepressants (esketamine and brexanalone) to alleviate severe depression symptoms within hours.
  • Dietary supplements for pregnant women to potentially help prevent subsequent mental illness in the child.
  • Development of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and continued improvement of TMS and other non-invasive brain stimulation treatments for treatment-resistant depression and obsessive compulsive disorder.
  • Computer-guided training for cognitive remediation in people with schizophrenia.
  • Use of the antipsychotic drug, Clozapine, on treatment-resistant schizophrenia patients.
  • Use of Deep Brain Stimulation for treatment-resistant depression.
