Baycrest is proud to be one of Canada’s most research-intensive hospitals as our researchers have uncovered groundbreaking discoveries to help stem the tide of dementia.

Our researchers have shown that older brains can rewire themselves to maintain cognitive function; demonstrated bilingualism’s protective effects against dementia; shown how eating well is linked to good brain health; unlocked the hidden benefits of volunteering; and created a virtual brain combining neuroimaging with the power of artificial intelligence to speed up diagnosis and the development of treatments.

Within Baycrest’s highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, our staff, clients, volunteers and partners work together to understand, protect, and enhance brain health throughout our lifetimes, with a common goal of adding life to years.
