[The Center’s] major emphasis is on prevention—to help prevent and catch memory loss in its early stages before it turns into Alzheimer’s or dementia.
The Symposium convenes distinguished neuroscientists to discuss the latest advances in brain research and attracts an international audience of cognitive scientists, physicians, psychologists, researchers, and other professionals in the field.
In 2010, the Symposium established the Charles Branch BrainHealth Award. Named after Charles Branch, M.D., a leading research scholar, neurosurgeon, and humanitarian who trained with legendary neuro-icons Drs. Wilder Penfield and Theodore Rassmussen, the award is given each year to honor an outstanding individual for achievement in brain research.
A special archival Branch-Penfield collection tracing the history between the brilliant pair is on permanent display at the Center in Dallas. See the online archive.
