The name “Bloom” is inspired by the results of research done by Yale and the National Institute of Health that say ketamine causes a burst of new connections to form between nerve cells in parts of the brain involved in emotion and mood. This process is called synaptogenesis.

This “before and after” image of the nerve endings of a rat brain used in the study shows the research results. This image is the inspiration for the name Bloom. The study’s results were the inspiration for offering ketamine to Winona and surrounding communities.
