What is incredible about the Center for BrainHealth is that researchers work side-by-side with clinicians. I do not know of another Center like this in the United States.
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.
The 2013 Reprogramming the Brain to Health Symposium will be held at the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at The University of California, Berkeley on March 28, 2013 in the Genetics and Plant Biology Building, GPB 100.
