I just discover the book From words to brain a Guide tour through the neuroscience of readding by Livia Blackburne. He stars with a powerful cuestion, What is it that transforms a page full of words into a tale that entertains us, informs us, and ultimately leaves us changed?

In her essay, Blackburne, former MIT neuroscientist, explores the brain basis of reading–a skill that is incredibly complex and integral to modern culture. Using the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood as a guide, Blackburne follows the story from its physical manifestation on the page, through the reader’s visual system, and ultimately into the reader’s imagination and beyond. Because the experience of reading a story does not end with the last page. That’s the point at which the real magic begins.
