For a while, I have been contemplating the idea of adding a blog to the C-STAR website. After much procrastination and endless excuses, we are finally doing this. The blog, which we call ChitChat, will be a forum where members of the C-STAR team and anyone else who is interested in aphasia, neurobiology of language, or related areas can post their reflections on a given topic or issue.
For example, ChitChat will provide an opportunity for short summaries of new research forthcoming in peer-reviewed publications as well as discussions of things that may not fit so well in peer-reviewed pubs. I will moderate the blog and welcome your posts/input. For each post on ChitChat, readers will have the opportunity to discuss on Twitter or Facebook. My plan is to make updates as necessary if we receive feedback regarding potential inaccuracies or if something is not clearly written.
Please note that ChitChat is not necessarily intended as a thorough review of all the issues raised here and I apologize in advance if important work or viewpoints were ignored that might be helpful to the discussion. If you have any comments/questions/concerns, please let me know: email@example.com
