How do we find out more about Dr. Light’s research?? This is very promising.

You could try contacting Dr. Light himself. His contact info is here: https://profiles.ucsd.edu/gregory.light.

The author of that article has a page here: https://www.pressrush.com/author/9210520/ana-sandoiu . . . looks like you have to join something in order to email her.

I don’t know how it compares, but there is also a cognitive improvement tool that you can sign up for called BrainHQ. I know of a residential treatment program that recommends this. It is an easy way to get a person started because it can be done from a phone. There are free emails (questions/problems to solve) and full access for a fairly small monthly fee.
