Your brain on fiction.

Just came across this article in the NY Times. Yes, Montag, there is something there!


I love this:

"Individuals who frequently read fiction seem to be better able to understand other people, empathize with them and see the world from their perspective. This relationship persisted even after the researchers accounted for the possibility that more empathetic individuals might prefer reading novels."
