Indiana's first neuroscience center will soon open. 

A special ceremony was held Friday at the new Indiana University Health Neuroscience Center on West 16th Street.

Beginning Monday, the center will treat Alzheimer's disease, brain tumors, epilepsy, strokes and depression.

This first-of-its-kind facility will also offer patients access to experts who specialize in injuries affecting the brain, spine, nerves and muscles.

Keith Griffe was seriously injured this past Father’s Day. Doctors expected him to be paralyzed for life, but Griffe was at the ceremony walking around and talking with doctors.

“The biggest thing the doctors did here, they worked together and they didn't ever stop, they saved my life,” said Griffe.

A special event offering free stroke risk and blood pressure screenings will be held at the center Saturday from 1-4 p.m.
