    Dear Dr. Kerchner:
    I would like to know if you are aware of anyone in the SF Bay Area doing light therapy for memory loss as in hippocampal sclerosis diagnosis Specifically the only one we know of is Dr. Maragaret Naeser of the Boston University School of Medicine. Her light therapy is “investigational” with veterans of the Gulf War.

      From Dr. Kerchner, “Thank you for bringing this interesting research to my attention; I had not heard of this approach before. I am not aware of any center in the SF Bay Area enrolling patients in a similar research study.”
