“Ultimately, we would like to find biological markers – brainwave signals, images, blood signatures – that will help doctors diagnose and treat mental health and learning disorders more accurately and quickly,” Dr. Escalera said. “And if, along the way, we can help families get the help and support they need for their children to be successful in school and life, then that’s a win-win.”
The Healthy Brain Network currently sees participants at three locations: 445 Park Ave., 2nd Floor, Manhattan; 1 Teleport Dr., Suite 201, Staten Island, or by using their Mobile Research Vehicle, visiting neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs.
