Subject: Sum: Reference

Here is the reference I posted a request for: Shaywitz, Shaywitz, Pugh, et al.,
"Sex differences in the functional organization of the brain for language,"
Nature 373 (Feb. l6, l995), 607-9. Several people answered my request, with
most complete information coming from Laura L. Koenig (koeniglenny.haskins., and Alice Faber (>, who included an e-mail
address for one of the authors, Ken Pugh (

Wayne Cowart notes that Ken Pugh is the cognitive psychologist who actually
designed the experiment. Two people mentioned that the results should be
taken with caution, and one said there is an editorial on doubtful aspects of
the findings, in the same issue of Nature.

Many thanx to all who answered.
