Experts To Discuss Latest Findings
On Brain Health In TV Panel Discussions

Faculty members from The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) and its Center for BrainHealth will participate in two separate panel discussions about scientific discoveries with the potential to enhance and improve brain function on the television talk show "The McCuistion Program."

The first program, entitled "Discoveries and Hope for Brain Health," is scheduled to air Sunday, June 15, at 1 p.m. and 11 p.m. on North Texas public television station KERA Channel 2. It also will air in nearly 20 other states. Drs. Steve Lomber and Michael Kilgard from UTD and Dr. Roger Rosenberg of UT Southwestern Medical School at Dallas will serve as the panel experts.

The second show, entitled "A Lifetime of Brain Building," is scheduled to air Sunday, June 22, also at 1 p.m. and 11 p.m. Panelists will include Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, director of UTD's Center for BrainHealth, and Drs. Steven Kernie and Ramon Diaz-Arrastia of UT Southwestern.

The Center for BrainHealth - part of UTD's School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences - integrates research, treatment, academic training and community outreach and is one of the few facilities in the United States to provide continued follow-up to enhance and monitor functional recovery in children and adults with brain injury, brain disease and complications of normal aging. One of the center's top priorities is achieving healthy mental aging by translating scientific findings into treatment.
