- McCrossin, Susan. "The Effect of Acupressure Treatment on Standard Intelligence Test Scores and Reading Comprehension for Children with Learning Difficulties." - An alternative model of learning disorders is based on recent neurophysiological findings that suggest it is the timing and synchronization of neural activity in separate brain areas that creates high order cognitive functions. Any loss or malfunction of the timing mechanism may cause disintegration of neural activity and hence dysfunction in cognitive tasks (Damasio, 1994; Nunez, 1995). This model supports the approach that McCrossin et al. (1994) developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
