Key Research and Publications
Dr. Fratantoni also leads the Center’s Kindness Enterprise, a research and translational program seeking to uncover and harness the brain’s capacity for kindness, empathy and compassion as critical components of overall brain health and well-being. She has led high-performance brain training for corporate executives, veterans, athletes and young adults. She finds her work most rewarding when she can empower individuals to cooperate at their highest capacity, reduce stress, achieve their goals and be the best version of themselves.
This groundbreaking study examines the potential to revolutionize global health using a holistic, personalized measure of brain fitness (the BrainHealth® Index) in conjunction with SMART™ Brain Training.
The BrainHealth pilot study Kind Minds With Moozie examines the impact of digitally-delivered, self-paced brain science education and kindness activities on resilience and empathy in parents and preschool-aged children.
What Is Brain Health?
Julie Fratantoni, PhD, and Jennifer Zientz, MS, CCC-SLP, join Jim Falk, co-host of local KERA and issues-oriented television program McCuistion, to discuss how to accelerate the brain's capacity to increase your own mental ability, sharing ideas for ways you can take control your own brain health at any stage of life.
