Welcome! Or, Welcome Back!
Thank you for stopping by! This page was a subdivision of DearShrink.com for 12 years. It has been retired and has not been updated since 2010. However, many of the links are still available, and we decided to leave this as an archived page for the time being.
As noted on the Home Page of DearShrink.com, Dr. Sterling's current and far future mission is to dedicate as much time as he can to reading primary research literature with respect to the neurobiology of the ADD and the non-ADD brain and to communicate the knowledge he gathers to his readers.
