Studies reveal our brain prefers paper over screen

Studies reveal our brain prefers paper over screen

by Fernando - 0 Comment(s)

Although E-readers are becoming very popular, there might be a strong reason to keep reading paper books. According to an article published by the Scientific American Magazine, studies show that people are more likely to remember what they read on paper better than on a screen.

 

The human brain may perceive a text in its entirety as a kind of physical landscape. When we read, we construct a mental representation of the text that is likely similar to the mental maps we create of tarrain and indoor spaces.

 

You can find the article in the November edition of the Scientific American Magazine. Will you prefer to read it on paper or on your tablet?
