Washington University School of Medicine has received a $20 million donation to establish a new center for psychiatric research.
The Taylor Family Institute for Innovative Psychiatric Research will focus on developing new and more effective therapies for psychiatric disorders. Researchers will start by studying neurosteroids, chemicals in the brain that help regulate thinking and emotion. Changes in levels of neurosteroids can be linked to mood disorders, chronic pain, epilepsy, or Alzheimer’s disease.

The study, conducted by Public Opinion Strategies also shows that 47 percent of Missouri's registered voters "strongly support" the cameras.
