If you ask a person to look out for a letter, say "X", embedded in a stream of successively presented numbers, you'll find their ability to detect any other stimuli immediately after that "X" will be severely compromised.

  8. I think this is my first time participating in Friday 56. My quote is incorporated into my book review. It isn't exactly line 5 on page 56 because that line needed too much explaining to understand it. So I chose one a little lower down the page.

    I have several Rough Guides in my library and they are good resources for specialized information.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
