Groundbreaking research at The Center for Brain Health (CBH) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is transforming the way we grow older by recognizing the centrality of a healthy brain in the aging process. The focus of the Center is the development of technologies and interventions aimed at the earliest detection of brain disorders; the prevention of neurocognitive decline and the preservation of brain fitness across the age-span; and the repair and rehabilitation of impaired brain function to forestall chronic deterioration and its effect on general health. By accomplishing these goals, CBH will extend the overall health, societal productivity, and quality of life for elders.
