BRAIN HEALTH LAB
Building a Better Future
We seek to develop and apply the public health tools of the 21st century, integrating functional neuroimaging and mobile technologies, to identify risk and health profiles of activity- cognitive, physical, and social. We will use these profiles to design novel mobile applications and lifestyle approaches that harness the brain’s and body’s natural regenerative potential, from mid life into later ages, to delay and prevent the onset of dementias.

Dedicated to Enhancing the Lives of Others
At Carlson Lab, we believe that the best solutions come from the people who are most affected by the problem. We have dedicated our lives to working with these communities — providing whatever support they need in order to unlock their potential. We want all individuals to envision their goals and realize they have the ability to make their dreams a reality.
