Understanding a different mind: memory organization and receptive language

I wrote about my son's memory and processing disabilities two days ago. Today I read a Zimmer article on the routers in our brains, and how consciousness goes offline during even simple decision making tasks. I think we'll hear more about this "router" dysfunction hypothesis, particularly in the context of autism, schizophrenia and other disorders of cognition and consciousness.

The "offline when making decisions" model is something I'll be watching for in him.
