About Arcuate

The Arcuate, from the Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center, provides information on new programs, innovations and our continued efforts to bring the best neurosciences care to the patients of Cook Children’s, the state of Texas, and beyond.

Latin for “curved bundle,” the arcuate fasciculus is essential to communication, as it connects Wernicke’s area (receptive speech) to Broca’s area (expressive speech) in the brain. Without it, we could never effectively convey our ideas, accomplishments and plans for the future.

From our directors

It is an honor and privilege for us to lead the Jane and John Justin Neurosciences Center at Cook Children’s. Thanks to our outstanding staff and team of innovative neurosciences professionals, we have built one of the most technologically advanced neurosciences centers in the United States. Forging the way as leaders in pediatric deep brain stimulation and epilepsy care, the foundation is set for even greater accomplishments in the future. In this new year, we turn our attention to improving care in pediatric stroke, making epilepsy surgery minimally invasive, and continuing our tradition of innovation through research which benefits all children with neurologic disease. Without the generous support of the Jane and John Justin Foundation and the many donors dedicated to Cook Children’s, none of this would be possible. This quarterly newsletter will help communicate what our team has accomplished, what we are currently creating, and where we want to go in the future. As the directors, our doors are always open and we invite everyone to contact us with your ideas, recommendations and support as we continue as a leader in pediatric neurosciences.
