As we age, our brain has a harder time dealing with distractions. Brains get stronger by eliminating distractions rather than pushing to overcome them.
Researchers handle intern recruitment and placement individually. To inquire about internship opportunities, please contact the researcher with whom you are interested in studying or working.

"The Center [for BrainHealth] offers many distinct opportunities for interns. Through the course of the internship, I was able to strengthen my public relations skills, professional development, and leadership abilities. The Community Relations team was encouraging, valued my ideas, and worked as a unified team. I learned valuable ways to maintain donor relations and motivate others to support a worthy cause. When I went back to Baylor this fall, I was able to look at my courses from a new perspective and apply what I had learned. This experience was invaluable for me."
