Not a brain bank per se, but a for-pay brain autopsy program. Some brains are kept after autopsy, and tissues from Alzheimer's, other neurological disorders and a few controls, are available to researchers. The center operates the Dementia Brain Bank Research Program, contributing tissues for research on neurochemistry, physiology, and diagnosis of dementing illnesses. It also collects clinical records and a family history for each donor.
