The Nootropic Concept and Dyslexia.
Wilsher, Colin R.
Annals of Dyslexia, v36 p118-37 1986
Studies with Nootropic psychoactive drugs (such as Piracetam) suggest that Piracetam lacks significant side effects; promotes memory and learning; and improves the reading ability of dyslexics, possibly by directly affecting the left-brain hemisphere. Results are contrasted with studies showing the lack of effectiveness of intensive teaching. (Author/DB)
