The College of Education's BRAIN CENTER (Building Resilience across Ages through Integrative Neuroscience a Consortium of Education,Neurofeedback Therapy, Epigenetics and Research) researchers have begun a groundbreaking, transdisciplinary, inter-institutional project in the field of clinical neuroscience and genomics research. The team has partnered with a mental health treatment facility to examine the application of integrative neuroscience technology to address trauma and mental health disorders in combination with environmental toxin exposure.

The BRAIN CENTER was founded in 2017 by Dr. Eraina Schauss, Assistant Professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling, in partnership with colleagues in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, the College of Public Health and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center's Department of Genetics, Genomics, and Informatics. The research findings will have enormous implications in the fields of genetics, genomics, clinical neuroscience and mental health treatment.
