We conceived a fully integrated system of training exercises delivered in an intense, one-on-one environment designed to rapidly correct weak cognitive skills. This enables us to counteract an individual’s […]

What’s more, their brain activation was richer, with activity in areas of the brain associated with memory, language, and visualization. What advantages does paper have over […]
