Episode 4: What does the brain do while reading? by I Wonder... published on 2012/04/11 16:50:41 +0000 As you’re reading this sentence, what is your brain doing? What’s actually going on as it turns a bunch of lines and circles into words that carry meaning? This week, I Wonder… explores the world of reading. During the program, we talk to some people who have been thinking about the reading brain for quite a while: Dr. Maryanne Wolf, author of Proust and the Squid, Dr. Marcel Just from Carnegie Mellon University, and Dr. Charles Perfetti from the University of Pittsburgh.
