What Jane Austen Can Teach Us About Our Brains
"'This is your brain on Jane Austen,' rang the headline [on the Standofrd University study]. Oh, no, not another one, went my head. ... This one, however, proved to be different. It's not about your brain on Jane Austen. Not really. It's about a far more interesting question: can our brains pay close attention in different ways?"
