Maybe I should hold back full details until after the March 30
presentation at the NY Academy of Sciences; people in NYC are so busy,
all they need is to see an abstract of a talk to relieve them of any
urge to attend it (of course, they  might also be too busy to look at
this newsgroup, but I know at least one or two who do).

Remind me after March 30; or if you can't wait, look for Kim, KH et al.
in Nature last year.

For now, let me just say all your languages are "in" approximately the
same place--emphasis on APPROXIMATELY (as with George Ojemann's
inferences based on intraoperative stimulation studies, years ago).
