Half a second to speech

A friend sent me this interesting article on speech:
The study found that it takes about half a second to transform something we think into something we say. And three very different kinds of processing needed for speech are all happening in a small part of the brain called Broca's area, which lies beneath the left temple.
I will talk about more this in future posts.

Yes, so here is the message. If you suffer from severe epilepsy, your surgeon might screw you up! ;-)
