Last week, the Center for BrainHealth unveiled the new home of its Brain Performance Institute.
The 62,000-square-foot building and program center, located at Mockingbird Lane and Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas, is the first of its kind. It is offering scientifically based programs to increase brain performance, health, and regenerate brain cells.
Surrounded by some of the world’s top brain researchers and clinicians, Center for BrainHealth Founder and Chief Director Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman led a “Reimagined Ribbon-Cutting” on Thursday, Oct. 12.
Guests included Former First Lady Laura Bush, former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, military veteran and NFL All-Star Chad Hennings, UT Dallas President Richard C. Benson, and Georgeann McRaven, wife of UT System Chancellor William H. McRaven. Each spoke about the importance of bringing brain performance to the forefront.
The reimagined ribbon-cutting portrayed the lighting of two neurons igniting across an artistically rendered glass synapse, signifying the official opening of the iconic building and the official launch of a nationwide and globally relevant Brain Performance Movement.
Dr. Leanne Young, executive director of the Brain Performance Institute, said the new building is home to programs that help people at all stages of life and those affected by various conditions.
“This isn’t just about preventing dementia, although it’s important to so many. It’s about improving brain performance and health in everyone right now,” Young said. “The Institute will help young people focus in school, retrain the minds of those affected by military experiences or sports injuries, strengthen mental acuity among corporate leadership and empower each and every one of us to take charge of our own brains so that we can have healthier, stronger, more energetic brains today and in the future.”
