Why Reading Matters: a Holistic Study for the Digital Age
“… this program studies the brain’s role in the process of reading and what we gain from reading, especially of fiction … Tracing the brain’s adaptation to reading historically and through modern medical imaging technology, the film shows us how the brain reacts to words … fiction may provide the brain’s most cerebral workout; more significant, fiction provides us with the ability to develop empathy.” — from a review by Ernest Jaeger in Library Journal (September 15, 2011, p. 45)
