Brain Performance Institute
The Brain Performance Institute is a key part of the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas at Dallas. Focused on understanding, protecting, and healing the human brain, the center works through research programs to understand the brain’s ability to restore or protect healthy brain function, protect the brain from unnecessary mental decline, and heal the brain through treatments that regenerate brain function. The institute supplements the center by providing scientifically validated programs and assessments that enhance individual brain performance and health.
The institute features flexible office space that can be reconfigured according to individual programming needs and includes training spaces, an internet café, a meditation garden, and several touchdown work areas for patients, family members, and visitors alike, as well as two MRIs, classrooms, and administrative offices. The elliptical form of the building’s story, wraparound glass façade pays tribute to the form of the brain’s frontal lobe.
