Reading and neuroscience

Interesting study that shows how various regions of the brain are involved for different types of reading – for pleasure or close reading. Although preliminary, it might surprise how widely areas of the brain are involved. No wonder we like to read. Very encouraging for authors as well as fascinating for the scientists.
