> Teaching versus dementia avoidance?
I'd have to agree it's probably harder to control the processes that grow dementia.
But first, they would have to have a damn good explanation why previous training methods did not improve speed of execution.
> Leave the rest of the grown-ups to do some real work.
Well, the grown-ups in psychology and psychiatry have fucked up quite a bit, haven't they? There's no base for trust in spectacular results. That requires really solid evidence and either replication or a model that explains how it's supposed to work. Neither is provided.
> Gut feeling? That's your standard to rebut ten years of research?
Jesus Christ. I explicitly say it's "gut feeling". I did not write "to my best expert judgement". By the tone of your reply, you feel attacked. If so, ask yourself why.
