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.
