Anne Kreamer, at the Harvard Business Review blog, shares the fascinating research showing that reading fiction imrpoves some brain function. More specifically, reading fiction improves neuronal connections in the pre-frontal cortex. That’s the part of the brain that make judgments and controls impulses.
Reading fiction is GOOD for you. What’s better is that it is good for you in a way that is good for others.
