Medical and Surgical Errors and Cautions: 2008

Herper and Lindner (2008) recently noted according to The Institute of Medicine ( a non-profit chartered via the U.S. National Academy of Science) 1.5 million Americans are impacted by hospital errors annually. The authors report between 40,000-100,000 people die annually because of "shoddy handiwork" that includes surgical and pharmaceutical mishaps.

Beyond Brain Processing, Brain Predictions via fMRI

It has been previously proposed that as two people converse, the talker's task is to selectively speak particular words from his or her vocabulary "inventory," while the listener's task involves "re-assembling meaning." From the listener's viewpoint, meaning occurs over time as the listener continually reduces word options while funneling the incoming stream of words into smaller and more finite units, thus replicating the talker's options, and hopefully receiving the intended message.
