Sprinkled between her one-dimensional, often over-the-top illustrations--these are images meant to help you think and feel, not to linger over--Stromquist includes reproductions: photographs of stone figures, relics, and sculptures found by archeologists in places across the world, including the southwestern Pacific, Malta, Greece, Germany, and the former Yugoslavia; and cut-and-pasted words and diagrams, bits of research culled from additional sources, like textbooks and advertisements, and put here into provocative juxtapositional contexts.

Because the APA of GI are thought to be initiated via juxtapositional lobule cortex (formally the supplementary motor area) [11], it is possible that dual tasking during GI will differentially affect motor/cognitive performance because both the motor and cognitive tasks in this paradigm will rely on higher cortical function.
