Gesture and the Brain

Some of this research talks about the similarities and differences between language and gesture, which is also related to the videos that Kathy would like us to watch. One of the articles also talks about gesture and culture using a neurological approach.

This is about body languages.

we can find lots of great information on the web, but there are not many pictures, and looks kinda boring.
What about we make gestures and take photos (or draw) sometime to "show" examples?
