Biased Review of a Fabulous Essay: From Words to Brain by Livia Blackburne
What happens when you read? How does your brain derive meaning from words on a page? My writing buddy Livia, attempts to answer these questions by explaining some of the latest in neuroscience research in a way that will interest science buffs, writers, and readers alike (not that these groups are mutually exclusive :) ). I may be biased because Livia is my friend (and I got to read and comment on some of the early versions!) but this is a highly fascinating read.
Definitely worth buying.
