ABSTRACT
In this paper I am particularly interested in exploring cognitive habits and inclinations acquired from education, the development and use of cognitive enhancements, the societal benefits of effective cognitive enhancement, the use of brain images to represent the level of brain activity associated with cognitive processes, and communication as a social psychological phenomenon. The results of the current study converge with prior research on the critical role interaction plays in clarifying speakers' intentions, the effects of communication on cognition, the social psychology of interpersonal communication, and the impact of social factors on language comprehension.
