A study conducted by the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive Brain Sciences demonstrates that learning to read by the age of 30 profoundly transforms the structure of the brain.
“When becoming literate neuroplasticity conquers a network that is deeply rooted in the brain. This reorganisation makes us more and more efficient in visually navigating through letter strings”
At a neuroplastic level, schooling determines the creation of a deeply rooted network. This reorganization makes us more and more efficient in reading individual letters and sentences.
Reading was not foreseen by our primary brain: in fact, there are no brain areas predisposed to reading. When we learn to read, ancient evolutionary structures of the mind are reconfigured so far assigned to different skills.
These are the results of a large-scale study carried out in India where completely illiterate women learned to read and write in just 6 months.
Ecco cosa accade:
The retina receives visual stimuli
The superior Colliculus amplifies the stimuli received
The Pulvinar Nuclei filters visual information
The visual cortex enables the perception of letters
The results of this research were so impressive as to offer a new vision of dyslexia. The incredibly fast learning of these volunteers offers hope not only to illiterate adults, but also sheds new light on the possible cause of reading disorders such as dyslexia.
What does this research tell us that is useful for us?
OUR MIND LEARNS MORE AND MORE ' BECOME ABLE and QUICK TO LEARN
Will it be true?
1st week - Take a book of twenty pages and measure the time it takes you to read it all.
2nd week - Take a twenty-page book and measure the time it takes you to read it all.
3rd week - Take a twenty-page book and measure the time it takes you to read it all.
The reading time measured in the third week should have significantly decreased.
