Neuroscientists create ‘atlas’ showing how words are organised in the brain - this is BIG

This is a very exciting bit of new research.  Check out the story and play the brief video to catch the major concepts.  I think this is BIG.  Thanks to my fiend Jeff Evans for bringing this to my attention.

Neuroscientists create 'atlas' showing how words are organised in the brain

From 10 for Today, a Flipboard magazine by Flipboard

Scientists have created an "atlas of the brain" that reveals how the meanings of words are arranged across different regions…

PLOS Science Wednesday: Hi reddit, my name is Dr. Nina Kraus and I found preschoolers’ auditory language processing parallels early language development, which would allow for early intervention for language disorders – Ask Me Anything!

Dr. Nina Kraus and her group at Northwestern are doing some of the best research in the world re the neurobiology of the processing of sounds and how it relates to important cognitive abilities.  Her work is always a "must" read for me.

Research Byte: Developmental trajectories for children with dyslexia and low IQ poor readers. [feedly]



----
Developmental trajectories for children with dyslexia and low IQ poor readers.
// Developmental Psychology - Vol 46, Iss 4

Reading difficulties are found in children with both high and low IQ and it is now clear that both groups exhibit difficulties in phonological processing. Here, we apply the developmental trajectories approach, a new methodology developed for studying language and cognitive impairments in developmental disorders, to both poor reader groups. The trajectory methodology enables identification of atypical versus delayed development in datasets gathered using group matching designs. Regarding the cognitive predictors of reading, which here are phonological awareness, phonological short-term memory (PSTM) and rapid automatized naming (RAN), the method showed that trajectories for the two groups diverged markedly. Children with dyslexia showed atypical development in phonological awareness, while low IQ poor readers showed developmental delay. Low IQ poor readers showed atypical PSTM and RAN development, but children with dyslexia showed developmental delay. These divergent trajectories may have important ramifications for supporting each type of poor reader, although all poor readers showed weakness in all areas. Regarding auditory processing, the developmental trajectories were very similar for the two poor reader groups. However, children with dyslexia demonstrated developmental delay for auditory discrimination of Duration, while the low IQ children showed atypical development on this measure. The data show that, regardless of IQ, poor readers have developmental trajectories that differ from typically developing children. The trajectories approach enables differences in trajectory classification to be identified across poor reader group, as well as specifying the individual nature of these trajectories.

Earl Buzz Hunt passes - one of the giants upon whose shoulders we stand

It is with sadness that I report that I just learned that one of the giants in the field of intelligence has passed--Dr. Earl Buzz Hunt. A link to his university web page is here.

One of his many great contributions was one of the better books on human intelligence. Click here for more info.
