Planet Word Museum and ASHA Announce New Digital Exhibit on Word-Finding Problems Like Aphasia

Planet Word and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association announced the launch of a new collaborative digital exhibit spotlighting word-finding problems.

Through voice-activated “beacons,” visitors learn how and why word-finding challenges occur, ranging from the “tip of the tongue” phenomenon many people experience occasionally, to aphasia, a language disorder that can dramatically reroute word finding in the brain. Aphasia has recently been in the headlines after the family of actor Bruce Willis announced he has been diagnosed with the disorder.

Besides explaining aphasia and its impact, the beacon covers a variety of other ways people can struggle to find words, how speech-language pathologists support people’s ability to communicate, and how the public can help friends and loved ones experiencing difficulties. The beacon itself communicates through illustrative photos, vid

Texas A&M College of Medicine Researchers Help Answer A Major Question: How Human Intelligence Develops

Scientists at the Texas A&M University College of Medicine have made a breakthrough discovery about the development of the brain. This new information contributes to our understanding of how the part of the brain that makes humans more intelligent than other mammals develops and offers insights into what causes intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders.

For years, experts have known that a thin layer of cells in the neocortex—the part of the brain that controls higher order functions such as cognition, perception and language—is directly correlated with intelligence in mammals. The larger the surface area of the neocortex, the more highly developed the mental capacity of that organism. For example, the thickness of the human neocortex is only about three-fold greater than that of mice.

Yet, the surface area of the human neocortex is 1,000-fold greater than that of mice. M

Summer Mealtime Struggles: From “Picky Eaters” to Children With Feeding and Swallowing Disorders, Tips for Helping Kids Navigate Tricky Food Situations

Camps, Vacations, and Gatherings Can Bring Seasonal Feeding Stress

Summertime with a difficult eater brings food off the grill (char lines!), vacations with family and friends (with their unsolicited opinions and advice), and new mealtime environments such as day or sleepaway camp (with limited or unfamiliar food options). The potential for child and parent/caregiver anxiety around meals is high, but there are ways to help limit seasonal feeding stress—and even thrive.

“Picky Eater” or Disorder?

There are many reasons why a child may have difficulty eating. For some, it’s a phase—a part of natural development where they are asserting independence (typically, during the toddler years). For others, it may be due to sensory sensitivities

Take These 7 Healthy Habits On Your Summer Road Trip

You've spent the past couple of years staying fit and healthy despite the unusual circumstances of mostly staying home.

Now you're packing the car for a well-deserved summer road trip, fraught with fast food, convenience stores and hours of sitting around with unhealthy snacks within arm's reach.

Can you keep up the good work? You can, experts say – if you plan.

"The idea is to keep to one's routine and healthy habits as much as possible on the road, just as you do at home," said Dr. Ian Neeland, a preventive cardiologist and associate professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland.

Preventive cardiologist Dr. Puja Mehta concurs.

"Everything is in the planning," said Mehta, associate professor in the Emory Women's Heart Center at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. "It can be a lot of fun and relieve a lot of stress along the way."
