Amazingly flexible: Learning to read in your 30s profoundly transforms the brain

Reading is such a modern cultural invention that there is no specific area in the brain dedicated to it. Scientists have found that learning to read as an adult reconfigures evolutionarily ancient brain structures hitherto assigned to different skills. These findings were obtained in a large-scale study in India, in which completely illiterate women learned how to read and write for six months.

The impressive learning achievements of the volunteers in the study do not only provide hope for adult illiterates; they also shed new light on the possible cause of reading disorders such as dyslexia.

This resourceful study from the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Netherlands, further confirms the scientific research that Dybuster bases its learning software on. To activate different areas of the brain and help create new routes that allow the user to over come their reading or math difficulties. The study suggests that the brain is still greatly more flexible in an older age than previously thought. Hereof the Dybuster training may also be beneficial for adult users!
