The Foundation’s help enabled my team to summarize studies published worldwide on the effects of alcohol and cocaine on attention spans, learning, memory and organisational abilities. The results of these studies had an influence on the development of drug-addiction treatments.  

Thanks to the Foundation, we were the first team to study, with the help of brain imagining, the cravings of people with schizophrenia to smoke cigarettes.

Finally, the Foundation enabled us to develop a new therapy which consists of using virtual reality to attenuate the suffering caused by auditory hallucinations of people with schizophrenia.
