“A brain that can think critically, that can function under stress, a brain that is resilient in the face of trauma, a brain that is creative, that is thoughtful, that is socially active … we all need and want that kind of brain.” — Admiral (ret.) William McRaven, spokesperson for BrainHealth Week
During BrainHealth Week 2023 (February 20–24th), hosted by the Center for BrainHealth at UT-Dallas, you can get access to simple, science-based tools and strategies that we can incorporate into our daily life. Each day’s theme focuses on a different aspect contributing to better brain health.
