    I'm surprised that this is news. I thought that was long since known. Heck, I knew it from somewhere. Of course artists have increased neural matter in these areas because that is what they do repeatedly.

    But do they taste any better? Can you escape the zombies by pointing to your friend and saying "Artist brain over there!"?

    We artists are the crème de la crème. We mustn't compare ourselves to other people - I have been saying that all along. Now that the evidence is concrete - and undeniable - everyone else will come onboard, with that ... finally!

    It took five thousand years for them to figure this out? All they needed to do was moderate an artists' forum for a year like I did.

    I can't draw a straight line with a ruler...

    You need to hold the ruler at its place while you do it.

    I have tried to draw things, but I am not artistic. According to the right-brain/left-brain theory--with artists' being "right-brained"--I am left-brained. But, a book I read suggested that people like me could do a better job if we tried to draw objects from the bottom up (with the paper upside-down, I think). Amazingly, that seemed to work for me. At least, it was a vast improvement over my earlier attempts!

    But, to me, the main point in this article is that whatever subject on which you choose to focus, the parts of your brain connected with that activity grow physically. I thought that was a revolutionary finding.

    That is why I think the Universal Translator would enhance your Boca brain region, associated with speech, and could be developed in connection with it, somehow.

    publiusr, try drawing with a pencil instead of a ruler. :shifty:
