ty care."

As in the past, the Institute will seek individuals over the age of 60 from the community to participate in research studies.

Since its inception in 1994, the Weill Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry has consistently received support by NIMH. This is the fourth and largest Center Grant awarded to the Institute since its inception.

Dr. Alexopoulos noted that the Institute demonstrated in its grant application that "we have the infrastructure and unique mix of innovative findings and synergies in place to take our research to the next level by developing new treatments and improving the care offered to elderly patients in the community."

The research efforts of Weill Cornell Institute's team of 13 NIMH-funded investigators, five at the full professor's level, have concentrated in three interrelated core areas:

  1. The Biology of Depression -- Studies in this area examine how medical and neurological illnesses may cause depression in some people and how the abnormalities in specific brain circuits may change the course of depression and influence patients' response to antidepressants.

  2. Treatment Development -- This work is based on the identification of behavioral limitations and disabilities that increase stress and promote depression in older persons. Developing behavioral treatments that target and mitigate these limitations may improve depression and quality of life.

  3. Treatment Implementation -- A set of studies focuses on ways to overcome barriers to depression care in the community. An example of the Institute's approach is a project that connects primary care physicians with mental health clinics so that they deliver a comprehensive care program for depression of older adults. Another project trains home care nurses on various sites across the country to recognize signs of depression and initiate treatment intervention.

Dr. Alexopoulous emphasized the urge
