The Connecticut Mental Health Center

Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit

The Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit (CNRU) has been conducting neurobiological research for over three decades. The clinical studies of the CNRU involve selected investigations in specific patient groups as well as the study of drug effects in healthy control subjects. This research is intended to help in the definition, understanding, and treatment of mental illness.

The CNRU is a comprehensive unit combining research and treatment with an experienced, dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and mental health assistants working together to provide optimum patient care. Located on the Third Floor, the CNRU consists of a l2-bed residential inpatient unit and five specialty outpatient clinics located off-site. These clinics offer innovative interventions for 1) obsessive compulsive disorder, 2) depression, 3) schizophrenia, 4) post-partum depression and menopausal mood disorder, and 5) cocaine addiction. In order to receive any of these services, patients must be able to demonstrate understanding of the research protocol in which they wish to enroll, understand its risks and benefits, participate on a voluntary basis, provide informed consent, and be a minimum of 18 years of age.
