Reading is a specific program for the brain that it is as necessary as Windows computer. A team of French scientists under the leadership of Stanislas Deane compared brain activity using MRI illiterate people learned to read in adulthood and 'normal', educated from childhood. It turned out that a competent person when identifying the text much more intensively starts to work the visual area of the cerebral cortex, the region responsible for processing sound information, and at the same time included several other brain centers. But not only it describes the "right brain" — even in the perception of oral information from a competent person begins more intense than in illiterate, working phonological oblast and included several other areas. And thus, reading causes the brain to work not only during the process but also makes it active for the rest of the time. This does not mean that you should teach the child to read from two years. But the fact that for seven years every man is obliged to possess this unique skill is undeniable.
