These recent posts about building memory have been accompanied by a spell of research and a renewal of fascination for what is being done in Asia.

Shichida's program uses a lot of Doman's ideas, which are widely available in his books. The place that I have learned the most about Shichida is from Brillkid's forums. Some of the parents in that forum have taken their children to Shichida's schools.

Superboy is just cute:
