Description : Looking towards the Montreal Neurological Hospital -

The Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) and Hospital (MNH) was created in 1934 thanks to several large donations. A major gift of $1,232,652 from the Rockefeller Foundation provided half the amount necessary for construction and established a permanent fund whose income continues to support the study of neurology. Dr. Wilder Penfield, who founded Canada,s only neurological institute and pioneered many new areas of neurological research, was called the moving spirit of the institute. Dr. Penfield was a pioneer in seeking to understand the brain and nervous system and in helping patients with intractable neurological disorders.
