Comment 3 by Dr. Chad :

It talks about reading. I wonder how this compares to other ways of story input such as verbal/audio or video. Many people talk favourably about reading or verbal storytelling, but movies and TV are often denigrated as poor means for learning. I'm curious if there are neurological differences that can demonstrate a difference, or if such criticisms are unwarranted.

My idea on this, is that reading allows readers to set their own pace and create their own imagery and interpretation. Movies will never accommodate that.
