Banking on the Value of Brains

The key to understanding and effectively treating Tourette lies in the ability of scientists to fully understand the brain’s basic biochemistry. Later this month, the TAA research and medical team will be traveling to the Harvard Brain Tissue Resources Center (HBTRC) at McClean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts to discuss the current state of the TAA Brain Bank and plan the next steps for the future of the program. As you may know, the Tourette Association of America Brain Bank Program was established to facilitate neuropathological studies of Tourette Syndrome. By working together with the HBTRC team, we are able to provide brain tissue to Neuroscientists dedicated to studying the basic causes of TS.
