I've just read a very interesting article about deaf signers who suffer
various forms of aphasia and other brain damage. It sheds some light on
exactly how the brain comprehends sign language, and how that relates to
spoken language comprehension. A very good read. It's in Scientific
American, June '01, pp. 58-65.
Incidentally, there's also an article about baldness this month. I'm
reading it with great trepidation. :)
