Research Prompts: Cultural Studies Of Mind And Brain

This is the coursework I’m assigned to present in April, 2012.  You know about me and public speaking.  And aphasia!  Last time I got away with minimal effort; and grace.  This time I will ACE the sucker!!

I had to decide between concluding our discussion on neuro-plasticity  or  adding a new discussion topic.   Other discussants are focusing on what I consider important, but uninteresting facts.  I’m more interested in enlarging the reach of the field of neuro-psych.  Here’s my list of topic headings.  Any input?

  1. Without having had a chance to review your links, I am always very interested in the plasticity of the brain and its inherent mechanisms for compensation. Things in my own mind having changed so radically due to ECT, I have to believe my brain is continually finding new and novel ways to adjust for the losses I sustained and the alterations that took place.
