Dear readers,

    For our first issue of Spring 2009, Brain Waves will focus on the development and use of language in human society.

    In greater detail, an evolutionary perspective will be featured that will discuss the emergence of human written language,  specifically the alphabet, highlighting its adaptive value, as well as its importance in human society.


    To complement this, a faculty member from the Psychology department will discuss her research on word recognition.  Dr. Connine’s work has focused on spoken word recognition, an ability of the human brain that consistently goes unnoticed.
