Message from the Chief Director
Invest in Our Future
Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD, Chief Director Dee Wyly Distinguished Professor, School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences Co-Leader, The BrainHealth Project
We created the Center for BrainHealth® more than two decades ago with a bold vision to transform how people take charge of caring for their brains. Our educational and research mission then, and still today, translates rapidly emerging brain health discoveries into actionable strategies for people to strengthen and improve brain performance.
Our scientific discoveries have already had a significant impact on people of all ages and backgrounds. Our proven protocols and programs have benefitted active-duty military service members and veterans and families, first responders, children and young adults, teachers, Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers, business and nonprofit leaders, and those with brain injuries, addictions, and mental health disorders. We have reached even broader audiences through lectures, conferences, and other public activities – inspiring people to be curious and proactive about their brain’s health.
I could not be more excited about what is possible! Stronger brain skills are the solution for a thriving future. BrainHealth is now poised to scale up to a national – even global – level where we can advance our vision around the world through The BrainHealth Project. This landmark 10-year initiative will benefit a limitless number of participants who understand and experience that caring for your brain is just as vital to long-term health as caring for your heart.
People are living longer than ever before, and we all want our peak brain years to match the gift of an extended life.
The Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas is leading the evolving science and its translation in pursuit of building healthy brains. Our scalable solutions are providing important breakthroughs in measuring, training, and motivating improvements in brain performance across the lifespan. We have built worldwide collaborations with cognitive neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, brain imaging engineers, technology gurus, clinicians, and public policy experts to converge discoveries and bring the greatest impact to people everywhere.
Our brain health drives our well-being, clarity of thinking, and social resilience. Be inspired. We invite you to join us by investing in our future.
