UT Dallas, October 19th: Public grand opening of the new Brain Performance Institute by the Center for BrainHealth

New Brain Per­for­mance Insti­tute at UT Dal­las (Pho­to by Albert Vac­er­ka, Esto Pho­to­graph­ics)


We are hap­py to announce that the Cen­ter for Brain­Health at UT Dal­las, an esteemed Part­ner of the 2017 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit, is open­ing a fan­tas­tic new home for its Brain Per­for­mance Insti­tute.

Leanne Young, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Brain Per­for­mance Insti­tute, makes one cru­cial point about their mis­sion and vision:

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. 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.”

Dur­ing its pub­lic grand open­ing this Thurs­day, Octo­ber 19th, the insti­tute will offer free pro­grams and events through­out the day, and a tick­et­ed lec­ture in the evening. Guests will be able to attend brain-cen­tric class­es, lec­tures and exhibits that pro­vide prac­ti­cal tips and insights for enhanc­ing brain per­for­mance.

  • From 1 to 5 p.m. there will be lec­tures and demon­stra­tions focus­ing on top­ics such as ways to opti­mize men­tal ener­gy, senior moments, eat­ing a brain healthy diet, cre­at­ing brain healthy work­places, mind­ful med­i­ta­tion, and many more.
  • The recep­tion and lec­ture from 6:15 to 8 p.m. will fea­ture TED-style talks from renowned neu­rol­o­gist Dr. Geof­frey Ling and art pio­neer Bon­nie Pit­man. Tick­ets to attend the evening event are $40 each and can be pur­chased online.


If you live in or near Dal­las, this is an event you can’t miss.
