The infographic explains how four brain areas involved in reading work, as well as critical skills that help develop and connect them.
Reading books helps the brain remain elastic and active, decrease mental decline, improve memory, and better grasp abstract concepts.
However, before we make full use of books, we have to develop reading skills. Opposite to speaking, our brains are not naturally set up to learn to read.
There are four different brain areas that are used for reading, and you can learn about them in a new infographic created by EAB, a company that cooperates with schools, colleges, and universities to address challenges in education and accelerate progress.
Scientists have found that we must develop certain parts of our brains and build connections between areas that were not connected before.
Keeping visual cortex, angular gyrus, auditory cortex, and inferior frontal gyrus active is one thing, but to become a better reader we have to teach the brain to decode.
The second part of the infographic describes four decoding skills that will help brain areas responsible for reading cooperate better:
phonics and word recognition

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
Devices are not dangerous for literature.People can be dangerous for literature.People, for example, who do not read.
