Oregon Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine in Neurological Disorders

ORCCAMIND is a center without walls committed to complementary & alternative medicine (CAM) and integrative medicine research in neurological disorders.



ORCCAMIND was initially created in 1999, through funding from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. Initial studies examined treatment using botanicals, yoga, chiropractic manipulation and acupuncture in people as well as more basic science studies. Most current studies are focused on mind-body medicine approaches and on the utility of dietary supplements.
