Postdoc in Neurophysiology/Neuropsychology (Veterans Administration and Yale University School of Medicine)
In summary: my training was in the U.S., in physiological psychology and neurophysiology. I then moved to Canada in 1979. The final 25 years of my career focused on the role of nutrition in brain development and mental function.

In 2021, I published THE BETTER BRAIN with Professor Julia Rucklidge.
