TORONTO - Premier Kathleen Wynne says Ontario will give $100 million over five years to the Ontario Brain Institute.

She says the money will be used for neuroscience research.

That includes research on Alzheimer's disease and depression, as well as cerebral palsy, autism and epilepsy.

Wynne says she knows the province is facing a $12-billion deficit, but they can't afford to wait.
