Reading is a relatively recent phenomenon for a man, so that, according to the ideas of our timethe human brain just adjusts to reading skills in the learning process, and does not rely only on the more evolutionarily ancient ways of processing visual information.
Stanislas Degaene (National Institute of Health and Medical Research (France)), and his colleagues wanted to know how the ability to read affects the functioning of the brain, and how does reading on the man, and saw a number of changes in thereaction to stimuli of different nature.
authors note that changes, mostly positive, does not negate the fact that the ability to read, as well as some other difficult skills also leads to the effects of "competition" skills in the area of the cerebral cortex.The region is responsible for the printed text, much less activated when a picture of a chessboard or persons.
Further studies will be considered shocking possibility that our ability to read is developing to the detriment of the ability to perceive faces.Yet the effect of reading can not be overstated.The researchers recruited a group consisting of 63 Brazilians and Portuguese (11 of them have not learned to read, 22 undertook it only as an adult, but the rest - when you were in school), in order to observe how reading affects a person.
authors themselves note that they specifically did not work with educated people usually turn out to volunteers like neyroissledovaniyah and with a layer of people who are not close to education.The researchers found that the ability to read, regardless of the time of its occurrence, indeed a very strong effect on the brain's response to these stimuli.
Influence reading is extremely high.Besides the ability to read positive effect on speech processing process by improving the work area in the phonological part of the temporal lobe, which relates to the auditory association cortex.
