Your brain on books

The New Yorker plugs Stanislas Dehaene’s Reading in the Brain: The Science and Evolution of a Human Invention.

About Joanne


  1. I’ve been studying DeHaene since receiving it for Christmas. I highly recommend it — what really happens in expert reading and the stages necessary to go from a non-reader to an expert reader.

    It should be required reading (and maybe even passing a test on the concepts Dehaene presents) for every k-5 teacher and principal.
