    1. Complimenti alla giovane ricercatrice per il tentativo di rendere comprensibili, attraverso la fiaba di Cappuccetto Rosso, concetti tutt'altro che semplici riferiti a funzioni del cervello umano che di semplice non ha niente. Mi sentirei di commentare con una sintesi soprattutto a mio uso e consumo. I prodotti dell'immaginazione, sia che si concretizzino negli oggetti che l'uomo costruisce, sia le rappresentazioni mentali astratte simboliche, come per esempio i caratteri della scrittura e più g [...]

    2. “From words to brain” covers just that – how our brains process the stories we read and the steps and processes that occur as we do so. Reading is a complex cognitive process, this essay/story conveys it easily. Using the tale ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, we’re lead through a series of explanations of how we read, but most importantly what’s happening in our brains when we do so. From the first steps of reading, (e.g. recognition of a letter/visual processing), to how authors manage t [...]

    3. My Thoughts: I don't normally read scientific papers but the subject of how humans read and interpret stories fascinates me. So, I read it. There is a lot of interesting information in the paper.For instance, humans are "not born with a reading reflex". We have a need to eat and sleep but we don't have a need to read. However, when we learn the task of reading, "our brains become so adept at this skill that it becomes as reflexive as seeing itself".Scientists have also found a brain region that [...]

    4. A fascinating essay describing how our brains process reading and covering a wide variety of topics along the way. How do marks on a piece of paper turn into images in our minds? How did interpreting these marks become a man-made reflex? How does a story provide a lesson or moral? Do people get the same message from the same story? This is the sort of subject where all the answers give rise to more questions and this very readable book takes you through a lot of them in quite a short space, usin [...]

    6. Livia Blackburn’s ebook From Words to Brain is a fascinating bit of reading… about reading.For those of us from literate societies, reading is a given. It’s easy. It even seems effortless. But the processes going on in our brain while we read are actually quite complex. We never even imagine what has to happen to turn the visual input of letters on a page or screen into a narrative which entertains, excites, frightens or pleases us while challenging or reinforcing moral values.But it happe [...]

    7. Consueto appuntamento bisettimanale in cui presento le nuove uscite e cerco di spiegare perchè le ho scelte. Come al solito, prendetela con beneficio di inventario: in fondo è l'oste che parla del suo vino.[]Sempre in tema profondamente bibliofilo, il saggio di Livia Blackburne esplora quello che le neuroscienze sanno della lettura o, per dirla da un altro punto di vista, racconta la scrittura creativa esaminata attraverso il modo in cui il nostro cervello elabora gli escamotage narrativi. Liv [...]

    8. Saggio ambizioso che si propone di spiegare i meccanismi di lettura dalla comprensione delle parole fino all'elaborazione dei testi letti.Le varie fasi di comprensione sono delineate facendo uso della nota fiaba "Cappuccetto Rosso"; trovo che questo faciliti la comprensione del saggio anche perchè la fiaba è molto nota, quindi il lettore non deve concentrarsi sulla trama in sè (che conosce) ma sul significato delle parti scelte rispetto al livello di comprensione che viene delineato nel parag [...]

    9. This is a must read for every writer and reader. I always said that reading is 30% authors intentions and 70% readers interpretation. But this books uses science to show and proof how the experience of storytelling has to be different and gives perspective to all the critiques and review we do and read. Really illuminating.

    10. Technically, I didn't actually read this, cuz it's in Italian. But I wrote it, so I think I know what it says

    11. Weldone Blackburne! of the brain as we read words, sentences, paragraphs and even a whole story. I was disappointed because it really didn't say anything I didn't know, although the references to different psychlovists' experiments were interesting and informative. However, I was expecting a dis ussion of which parts of the brain form the cognitive functions of comprehension, application of abstractions to concrete situations, analysis, synthesis and evaluation as we read. Perhaps there are such [...]

    12. This essay looks at how the brain processes words on the page from the initial act of reading through comprehension and memory. It is an easy read even for people without much background in science. I would have liked to see more detail and application to writing as well as reading, but deepening the science would have made the book less readable for the general public. There are some peer-reviewed citations available and I look forward to reading those.

    13. InterestingLivia makes several interesting points about the effect of words in our brain, using state-of-art research. However, I was expecting a more persuasive argument for the advantages of reading from the brain health point of view. Are there any?

    14. Short, basic but interesting, well written. If you have an interest in language, literature, and (very basic) neuroscience you'll likely enjoy it.
