Leave it to our good friend Sheila to make you feel like an unproductive schmuck. Sheila she been a major figure in the neuroscience of language for decades, doing seminal work on aphasia, speech perception, and more recently using fMRI to understand language organization in the brain. She also found the time to serve as Dean, Provost, and President at Brown University. I was Googling the "lexical effect" in speech sound perception, on which Sheila has done some relevant work in the past, and came across no less that six papers by Sheila and colleagues in 2008! To my disgrace, I had not seen any yet, but all look interesting. I've got some reading to do...
