EL PASO PRIME TIME: Communication and the Brain

In a rebroadcast from April 10, 2010, Florence Schwein talks with Samuel Riccillo, director of the Biosemiotic Research Laboratory at UTEP.  Ricillo talks about the role of human communication in the neurosocial evolution of the brain.  He talks about the development of early childhood communication, and about a recent study involving researching the thinking process from low-level abstraction to high-level abstraction.  Riccillo also explains why talking to yourself isn't necessarily a bad thing!
