I'm attempting to teach myself perfect pitch.
For five years I have been developing and constructing computer training games. I'm now happy with the design, and ready to start training in earnest.
This is going to consume hundreds of hours of my time.
I'm interested in Nootropics -- it seems like a good idea to supply my brain with the necessary chemical building blocks to put it into an optimum state for restructuring itself.
I will need all the help I can get; There is to date no recorded case of an adult acquiring perfect pitch.
But how can I intelligently choose a Nootropic stack? There are plenty of companies offering products (e.g. http://www.mindnutrition.com/products/neurostim or http://biosciencenutra.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=133) but I can't see any way to choose between them.
Firstly, does it matter that my required learning task is specialised? (I'm guessing that it doesn't because the task is basically performance-optimising a neural network, and it shouldn't matter whether the input data is coming from the eyes, the ears, etc)
Secondly, is there any known method of benchmarking nootropics? Maybe some kind of cognitive performance test, that could evaluate improvements to memory, critical thinking, et cetera?
And finally, is there some independent resource that puts the available product shoulder to shoulder?
PS Would 'Nootropic' be a sensible tag?
