Ontario Brain Institute Acknowledgement Statement

This research was conducted with the support of the Ontario Brain Institute, an independent non-profit corporation, funded partially by the Ontario government. The opinions, results and conclusions are those of the authors and no endorsement by the Ontario Brain Institute is intended or should be inferred.

Where a statement acknowledging other funding sources is necessary but not available, the wording should be drafted by the first author, discussed and agreed upon by all co-authors, with oversight and arbitration when necessary by the Publication Committee.

Matching Funds Statement 

Matching funds were provided by participant hospital and research foundations, including the Baycrest Foundation, Bruyere Research Institute, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Foundation, London Health Sciences Foundation,McMaster University Faculty of Health Sciences, Ottawa Brain and Mind Research Institute, Queen’s University Faculty of Health Sciences, the Thunder Bay Regional Heath Sciences Centre, the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine, and the Windsor/Essex County ALS Association.
