Brain Byte: Focused Reading

For years I have been involved in an in-depth Bible Study.  Some may think it too in-depth at a glance and say, “you spent one whole week in ONE chapter?”  However, brain researchers concur that focused reading has greater benefit than ‘cramming’ your studies.

Read More of Less

Reading, in general, is good for the brain. But reading fewer books and articles so you can give each of them more focused attention may be even better. “Our brain doesn’t do very well with too much information. The more you download, the more it shuts the brain down,” says Sandra Bond Chapman, PhD, director of the Center for Brain Health at the University of Texas at Dallas. “It’s better to read one or two good articles and think about them in a deeper sense rather than read 20.”
