I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you tell me with what Ken was poisoned? To answer you directly, there are no drugs or supplements that can reliably "stimulate" Ken's brain and improve his cognition. We rely on his natural healing ability once the offending toxin, infection, or other disorder has been corrected. Nerve tissue is notoriously slow to heal and so good husbandry and patience is necessary.
