Study Adds to Understanding of Language and the Brain

A new study of the brain is helping scientists better understand
how humans process language.
The study is being done in San Diego, Boston and New York.

One of the patients is a woman with epilepsy.
Doctors are monitoring Denise Harris
to see if she is a good candidate
for an operation that could stop her seizures.
They are monitoring her through wire electrodes implanted in her brain.

But while she is in the hospital,
she is also helping scientists understand how the brain works with language.
The study centers on a part of the frontal lobe called Broca's area.
Pierre Paul Broca was a nineteenth century French doctor.
He first recognized the big part that this small area plays in language.

Once rice is harvested, the hulls are out of a job.
They may be taken to landfills or burned.
Sometimes they are used to absorb waste in chicken houses.
Other times they are used to amend soil.
