Brain research

Posted on 27 June 2013


Brain research into TS will improve the lives of people with TS.

The donation of post-mortem (autopsy) brain tissue for research is important to further the understanding of the causes of TS and to develop more effective diagnostic tools and treatments in the future. Brain donation by people with no neurological disease is of equal importance, since it provides essential ‘control’ tissue for comparison.


As of September 2016 there is no availability to donate brain tissue specifically for research in the UK.


For any other questions regarding how to participate in research, please contact TA Research Manager Seonaid Anderson.
