New York ComicCon 2011

Next Saturday on October 15th I'll be speaking at the New York ComicCon for the first time. Here's my blurb from the program:
4:00-5:30 Comics Studies Conference 6: Understanding Comics and the Self—Neil Cohn (Tufts University) discusses several psychology experiments measuring reaction time and brainwaves that contribute to our understanding of what goes on in the brain when a person reads a comic and reveals that the understanding of comics involves a complex negotiation between a hierarchic system of narrative and the construction of meaning. [...]
I'm quite excited about this talk because it looks like I'll be presenting brand new data from my latest study of comics and the brain. Hope to see you there!
