Opening of the Mary J. Wright Research and Education Centre

From: Chris Montanini, Londoner

The Mary J. Wright Research and Education Centre at  Merrymount will officially open its doors in January 2016. This new centre will allow for cross-disciplinary research and the application of evidence-based tools for screening and intervention. One of the signature areas of research will be environmental effects on brain development.  Dr. J. Bruce Morton and Dr. Elizabeth Hayden will be working in collaboration with the Centre to study the impact of early adversity on brain development.  They hope to develop interventions that will mitigate the long-term effects of traumatic circumstances experienced by children.
