During the press conference organized by Professor Gérard Saillant, on Wednesday, November 28th to the Institute of the Brain and some Spinal cord, Jean-Claude Olivier put back(handed) a consequent check to the Institute.
The donation is the fruit of the sales of its personal effects accumulated throughout its career at Yamaha: helmets, jackets, T-shirts, racing motorcycles … Professor Gérard Saillant warmly thanked Jean-Claude Olivier’s initiative, then presented and explained the organization and the works of the researchers within the Institut du Cerveau – ICM and hopes that through your press articles, the world of the motorcycle will mobilize as the world of the automobile to contribute to encourage donations and to allow the Institut du Cerveau – ICM to pursue its action.
