Explanatory Note


On July 9, 2015, Cortex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Report”) that furnished, as Exhibit 99.1, a collection of slides that the Company intended to use in connection with its attendance at the National Angel-VC Summit & Growth Capital Forum being hosted at the Yale Club New York on July 9, 2015. Among other things, those slides referred to a clinical study of the compound dronabinol, which is being conducted by the University of Illinois (the “Study”). The Company attended the forum as scheduled, but noted that the estimated completion for the Study was incorrectly noted on slide 33 as 3Q2015, instead of the correct period, 2Q2016.


Accordingly, attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K/A are revised slides (the “Revised Slides”) that include the corrected date on slide 33. The full slide deck, with the updated slide 33, will also be available on the Company’s web-site.


The remainder of the information provided with the Original Report remains unchanged.
