Other Higher Synthesis web sites:

Higher Synthesis unites all three projects covering my work as a pediatric neurologist and neuroscientist, researcher, and public intellectual with a deep commitment to regenerating our planet's health and intelligence.

Higher Synthesis Health, my small private clinical practice, aims to move from fragmented healthcare to synthesis, and to engage in collaborative practice-based, treatment-guided research.

Higher Synthesis Works houses my writing, speaking, publication and other activities, with the aim of showing that higher synthesis indeed works.
