Additional Information

Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD, Chief Director of the Center for BrainHealth®, Dee Wyly Distinguished University Professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, is committed to enhancing human cognitive capacity and the underlying brain systems across the lifespan. A cognitive neuroscientist with more than 50 funded research grants and 200+ publications, Dr. Chapman is one of the pioneers advancing the young field of brain health. Her team is defining, measuring, improving and scaling brain health fitness protocols to reach people around the world.

Through her efforts, the Center for BrainHealth launched its Brain Performance Institute in 2017 as the translation arm to deliver rapidly emerging discoveries in cognitive brain health to the public. She spearheaded the Sammons BrainHealth Imaging Center, which opened in 2019 with a unique focus on developing objective measurements of gains in brain systems following interventions. Dr. Chapman is co-creator of The BrainHealth Project, leading an international, multi-year collaboration of 32 of the world’s leading brain health experts uniquely focused on doubling peak brain performance, inoculating against decline and extending brain capacity to match our longer lifespan.
