The stanley foundation brain collection and neuropathology consortium.

Schizophrenia research | Aug 3, 2000

The Stanley Foundation brain collection is an attempt to supplement existing brain collections for the purpose of promoting research on schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Specimens are collected with the permission of the families in a standardized manner, with half of each specimen being frozen and half fixed in formalin. The Neuropathology Consortium is a subset of 60 specimens from the collection, well-matched groups of 15 each with diagnoses of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder without psychotic features, and normal controls. More than 75000 sections and blocks from the Consortium have been sent to over 50 research groups worldwide to carry out a wide variety of assessments. These data will be integrated to provide a more complete picture of the neuropathology of these disorders.
