Reading Matters - Part 5 of the BBC Series
We have been sharing the BBC series on Reading Matters. In this next part of the 6 part series, we learn a little about the MEG (electroencephalography) and how it is possible to determine the parts of the brain involved in hearing or reading words.
It is quite fascinating as to how the brain responds to reading almost as though one heard the word or experienced the action. Thanks to modern technology we can understand how it is that a reader can enter into the actions and life of the book.
Reading therefore is tremendously powerful and can be used as part of therapy.
