The Center for BrainHealth at The University of Texas at Dallas will unveil the new home of its Brain Performance Institute during grand opening events beginning this week.

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 will offer scientifically based programs to increase brain performance and health, and to regenerate brain cells.

Surrounded by some of the world’s top brain researchers and clinicians, Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, Center for BrainHealth founder and chief director, will lead a “Reimagined Ribbon-Cutting” at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 12.

Invited guests include former first lady Laura Bush, former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, UT Dallas President Richard C. Benson, Georgeann McRaven, wife of UT System Chancellor William H. McRaven, and veteran and former Dallas Cowboys player Chad Hennings. They each will talk about the importance of bringing brain performance to the forefront.

The reimagined ribbon-cutting — a simulated, lighted brain synapse — will signify the official opening of the building and the launch of the Brain Performance Movement.
