Not to denigrate your gracious acceptance nor to denigrate brain damage
studies (much of my own research has been in this area, and it is
central to my day-to-day clinical work), BUT: please include also the
many, many studies of brain/behavior relationships in normal, undamaged
brains--using PET, SPECT, fMRI (functional MRI), MEG
(magnetorencephalograms), and even good old EEG, evoked potentials,
etc., etc.

And even some strictly behavioral/cognitive studies which compliment
physiological studies (e.g. using FIST, a test designed to measure
separate aspects of visual memory, based on physiological/anatomical
data identifying dorsal and ventral "visual streams" from primary
visual cortex to the hippocampus--Dr. Elena Kumkova and I introduced it
at the Seattle meeting of the International Neuropsychological Society,
2-3 yrs ago).
