Sign language piece made Scientific American's "Best of the Brain..." volume

Run, don't walk... actually, you can probably walk for this one. Scientific American has just released a "Best of the Brain" volume which is a compilation of neuro articles, edited by Floyd Bloom, that have appeared in the magazine in the last several years. The 2002 Hickok, Bellugi, Klima piece, Sign Language in the Brain, made the cut.

Hey, that's cool! Good for you. I wanna be on a top-ten list (and not on "top-ten people whose papers we reject instantly" ...).

Of course, when one considers the history of signing and how signers were treated, it is clear that this type of research is of not just scientifically valuable but also sociologically and politically important.
