More than Nature Needs: Language, Mind, and Evolution

The human brain is an not going evolutionary version. How did people collect cognitive capacities way more strong than something a hunting-and-gathering primate had to live on?

This suggested to the authors that significant differences existed in expectancy, attention and brain activity signal processing. A third study (Stelmack & Miles, 1990) found that disabled readers seemed to have a failure to engage long-term semantic memory, as demonstrated by their N400 responses to visually presented primed and unprimed words. These are the waves occurring at 400 ms from the stimulus onset and presumably reflect activity in cognitively related cortex. These results, combined, indicate that physiological differences exist between dyslexic and normal readers in cognitive processing, particularly affecting linguistic categories.
