She's author of the new book reader, come home. Welcome to science Friday. It's my pleasure. I even a hero of mine. With prost. I mean. Yeah. Not at all. But I've had to recover it. So I'm a recovering raider you've had to recover. Tell me about that you write in your book that you've had this experience happens to you where your your turn to a book you've loved many years leading. And you couldn't read it anymore. Yes. I have written a series of letters in this new book, and let her for I acknowledge one of the more humbling experiences in my scientific life in which I made myself, the the single subject, and what happened was I decided since I'm telling so many people about how their brain is changing when they've read I thought I would simply look at myself. And that was the beginning of a rather terrible experience. I picked up Herman Hess's glass bead game, which once was one of my most favorite pieces of literature and IRA. I simply couldn't read it. It was like it's really felt like I was pouring molasses over my cerebrum, and it was so humiliating. I thrust the book back until I realized Hermann Hesse all these people have been the friends of a lifetime. They have made me who I am. And so I determined to go back and read very differently just re twenty minutes a day. And I read took ten days for me to return to that mode of reading in which I could immerse myself and not be distracted by sin, tactic density or length or even the complexity of the arguments there, but it took a good a good ten days to to return home. If you attribute that to to the fact that you're you're doing more reading online versus reading in a book. I mean, the sort of one of the thesis of your of your book. Yeah. We are wrecking our reading habits and wrecking a lot of other stuff because we're reading online now instead of reading from a paper. Well, it begins with a statement. And it's very important that your listeners in my readers understand that I'm not making a binary argument. I am saying however that because the reading brain is plastic, you know, we never were meant to read we had formed this beautiful new circuit. But because it's plastic it reflects things like the writing system a Chinese reader is different from an English alphabet reader, but it also reflects the medium, so the dominant medium is going to be reflected in the style of reading even when you're not reading on the screen. It will affect you as you read print, and there are good reasons for that quite literally our circuit is it's. Like a mere held to the processes needed by any medium. So if a print medium is giving us precious, though, imperceptible time to allocate milliseconds to inference the the scientific method processes critical analysis immersion. That's that's the advantage of print that we think will be just continuous. No matter how we read elsewhere. But it's not the case the the advantages of the screen, which are hastening us along multi-tasking being ready for the next novel experience that ends up making a skimmers and skimmers literally skim what I call the deep reading processes that involve critical analysis, and empathy and even insight, and you say all those of that. That whole idea about skimming. And because we're not doing critical analysis and insight you say that's actually a threat to democracy. It was the last thing in the world that is a cognitive neuroscientist. I would be thinking I'm actually confronting implications for democracy, but three -ality is that one of the most precious aspects of deep reading is that we give time to inference we give time to critically analyze and evaluate the truth of what we're reading and also, and this is often the collected in understanding reading reading gives us an opportunity to engage. Our feelings, of empathy and also our engagement with alternative viewpoints. And one of the things that I I will never forget was an interview between Barack at former President Barack Obama and the beautiful novelist. Maryland Robinson about the power of reading to give empathy. And Obama said the novel is. What has taught me moral and ethical development. It taught me about other to which Maryland Robinson set the trend towards seeing others as center stir others is one of the greatest threats to our democracy. And I'll end this. This little part of our discussion IRA with a quote from Jane smiley or a paraphrase in which she was asked about the novel, and empathy, and she said the novels not going to die, but it may be sidelined. And if it is sideline we will be led by people who do not read who do not understand fully the feelings and the minds of others leading us to a potential new era of barbarism. So we're you say reading online you're making a distinction between reading websites things places like that. And reading a muck that might be a kindle e book or something like that. Correct. You know, this is a really important distinction IRA. There are different modes of reading, and we need to understand that even the kindle, which is far better than reading in a distracted internet type, computer environment screen environment. Even though that's far better. You still have three problems. You have a set towards the screen, which is the set or anticipation of evanescence of transitory images. So you end up still having this set towards speed hastening along. And in addition, the the second and third parts, are you don't have that concrete kinesthetic element that actually is activated in your brain in slows you down to allocate more time to these other processes, and you do not ever have what is called recurs. You can't return to. Monitor. What you what what might not have made sense a few minutes ago in in a screen. Even in a kindle, even though it is possible to return, you do not therefore your comprehension monitoring on screen while far better than a computer actually has some of that transitory images stick element that makes you speed faster than you would in a print form. A lot of a lot of folks wanna comment on this. Let me see if I can get a caller to in. It's got Andrew and Cleveland, high Andrew. I, wow, it's one of those moments where I'm listening on the radio, and I have worked with, but I work in a variety of schools all over north east Ohio as a substitute teacher. And I'm often seeing students who the one thing they lament is especially at the high school level is reading their literature assignments Middle Eastern with those books are harder to get through. I'm a big advocate with them freezing audio books as a means of of getting getting their material covered. And I'm curious as you guessed sees that as a another step down, the slippery slope, or if reading having a human voice reading to you is is a step in the positive direction. And while I was listening. I was curious. What do we know if? Data on on students that are taking tests by a computer as opposed to test on paper. They're read their reading and retention of those questions. And is there any is there any indication that one is better than the other or more harmful? Right. Andrew, thanks for that. What about being read to like in those right? This is a beautiful question that I'm often asked and I like an are are many of our young as not necessarily deep readers, but deep listeners, and I think it's a wonderful aspect because we're getting so much information that they might not they might not read. And so I consider it a good, but still insufficient alternative for the same reasons that involve comprehension monitoring on any screen, and that is with the audio again though, you can go back to check yourself to monitor your comprehension to remember the details. You don't do it as easily or it's very unlikely that you do. It. So even though I consider this is a positive. I don't consider a replacement and indeed you're you're listening to the teacher couldn't be more. Correct. So many of our professors of high school, and and college are lamenting that their students are no longer willing or have the cognitive patience to read long form, text, and there's this common. Little aphorism TLD are too long. Did it read and the reality is that our professors are so worried that our students are are really neglecting some of the nineteenth century hell Melville our twentieth century James there people who are writing me often in saying they are no longer having people coming to their seminars because of the density and length of books are off pudding and their students. Don't have. What I'm calling the cognitive patience to invest in retraining themselves to be able to read that and their implications. Not just for literature, but for referenda for contracts for for dealing with the complexity of worlds that can't be reduced to Twitter, our Twitter, brain, you know, we don't we don't want that for our young. Can you offer any remedy for this trend? Well, I I certainly have been thinking a great deal about what would it take to develop deep reading skills across every medium because that's really what we're talking about. It's it's cognitive choice to preserve what we know. We want our next generation to have at the same time not just allowing but propelling them to expand their their twenty first century skills. Their visual intelligence that goes so much beyond ours. So. We want both. And here's where I I tell your listeners is the perfect show in the world to say this. It is a hinge moment in which knowledge from science needs to be yoked with the designs from technology to be able to read dress this and to create children who are really capable of by literate and by digital brains that have equal skills. Now, you may know this an IRA new readers would your listeners wouldn't, but I have proposed a way in which our children move from zero to ten on print and carefully. Use that kind of sensory motor concrete kind of cognitive skills of children to learn deep reading over time with print and then have our teachers explicitly trained to teach deep reading skills. On the screen. So it's not this willy nilly assumption. That you read the same on each mode, but rather students are trained to ask. What is the purpose? What am I better at students? Don't know what they're better at I better get an break in here. This Friday from WNYC studio. So sorry, we have to..

When you see summer storms are terrifying. Lightning bolts coming down and thunder lightning off in the distance. But it's coming out me really quickly and I'm getting hired higher as thunderstorm lighting. Someone's getting closer and closer. I'm getting vertigo on my God. I can't get off the tree. I don't wanna fall. So I held on the tree for dear life and it became my access Mundi sort of my access right into the earth. And I just amazing experience. I mean, just beautiful experience, but also the threat of lightning coming closer and closer and every lightening strike it would hit Fratto patterns would just emanate out from every lightening strike and sinister occurred. You know where they're, you know. Sound and envisions were merging together and and sounds had visions and visions. That sounds and it was just an incredibly complex. The one of my favorite books, the glass bead game by by Hermann Hesse, also. Ludi and some other area night. He got the Nobel prize for nine hundred fifty five. But that was a deep dive into into inner space exploration. But I felt like I was part of the glass bead game, and there I was I was sending into this higher consciousness and I realized, oh my God, I'm Ana highest point in miles doing a lightning storm. This is not a good place to be, and and then I was up there. I was terrified and lightning storm came close closer. These empathic genyk just empathy for the universe. One, everything is fine. If I die here today I life is complete. Now I understand. I'm part of the fabric of all the matter this around me. I'm one with everything I made of stardust. Everything's may have started us. This is a continuum of nature. Death is natural. Birth is natural. Transitions are are just the way of way of existence. And then. The light on the wind came up. I'm washed with warm rain, and it was just terrifying a lightning storm. There and I'm thinking, I'll I'm gonna die, but if I don't die Paul, what are you going to learn from this experience challenges?.

"In you owe. Magna. I'm embarrassed to report that I literally questioned why the Nobel prize for literature have ever been given. And then I thought, I wonder if Harper Collins would ever publish this book today, I just thrusted back into my alphabetized h shelf and then thought about what have I done books. This book was one of my friends of my of my youth of my graduate programs. It was it was Hermann Hesse was a friend to my intellect. He had been a part of the contribution of my background knowledge, and I had just rudely thrusted away suitcases. Oh, sorry to keep interrupting. You hear just one of the drawbacks of being three thousand miles apart as we have this. Yeah, but, but I see, I'm curious though because the very immersive nature that drew you into this book to begin with was the thing that it seemed as if your brain was rebelling against the when you went back and reread it, you are absolutely correct. What I could not do was. Find that reflective contempt of mode of reading which had been for me how I read years ago in my in, not just my youth, my young adulthood, and it was as if it had been replaced in use that word, verse elective -ly replaced by a motive reading that could certainly read other novels. I, I'm not. I read as much fiction is not fiction, but this very dense, complex sin tactically and conceptually demanding novel was not being there was no es in me entering it. So here is the good news Meghna and that's really, I know why you asked me. I, I decided I cannot desert a friend and so I went back and I, I simply made a discipline of reading twenty minutes. A night for what took almost ten to twelve days almost two weeks. And then it was as if a switch was re replacing the other mode that had rebelled against it. And here's why impart I gave the title to the book. It was as if I have come home to my former reading self, I felt the holding ground the sanctuary has been refound, and I realized if this happens to me who knows all the, if you will, the idiosyncrasies of our present reading styles it can will affect many people. Now I hear, I hear the hope and I hear the passion in what you're saying, but I just wanna be clear you. You're not. I wouldn't wanna talk in a second about with you about how the brain changes when it's reading digital versus long-form books, but but you're not calling for us to smash our iphones and thrown the tablets out the window because I mean, look, most many people do most of their reading online or their information processing online these days, so. So is it, is it your? Are you saying that there's some sort of middle way some sort of way we can train our brains to have the same immersive experiences online or not? What are you saying? Juno Meghna. This is a question that I'm asking myself and that I am hoping to develop if you will do proposals for people to examine in a much more systematic rigorous research context would I am aiming for is for the development of. Of a reading set of styles, not one, but a set of styles that we can intentionally us after we have discovered our own purposes for whatever were reading. In other words, the screen reading mode is appropriate for much of our reading, but for that which is requiring and this is very intentional, which we know is requiring our fullest concentration and the desire to consolidate that information into knowledge. I believe we must be vigilant about allocate ala re allocating time to what I call the deep reading processes. And there is no question in my life that I had changed as much as the readers I am writing for. But what my real worry is is that it's one thing for. For adults who have long built up this deep reading brain. It's one thing for us to return to it. It is another question for those who have not yet developed such a deep reading circuit, and we're going to talk about that because I know a lot of people listening are probably thinking of their kids right now, but, but I'm curious, the win, you see this. This is something that I think would benefit us if we just got your definition of when you say deep reading?.

"Details that story in deed magnet. The last thing I ever thought was that I myself who am aware of all the weaknesses that can happen would be similarly affected like everybody that I try to caution on my weekend. It's so what I did Magda, I just out of pure curiosity. I decided to do a single cell design with myself as the subject. And I decided to read a book that in my graduate days had been one of my absolute favorite books. It was Herman Hess's glass bead game, which is a very dense complex book, not Hermann Hesse, Siddharta. Way too simple. But no, I chose has his glass bead gain also called Marcus Ludi would is when you plot? Oh, sorry. Sorry, if forgive me for interrupting, but when you first read it in your in your younger years, what is it that you loved about it? Then? I love the very complexity. I loved the idea of how we might think about the future in ways that I had never imagined before. And so the very appeal initially to me was that it was one of the more intellectually stimulating thought provoking books and going interactions that I myself would never have imagined. So it was with no small glee that I thought it's the perfect experiment. It's complex, it stints. I know the plot and so I can just immerse myself but Meghna as you already have have wetted the lis-. Listener's appetite. It was like pouring molasses over my cerebral cortex. I couldn't read it. I couldn't focus. What I was doing was literally using the motive reading that I used six to twelve hours a day. So I was using my screen mode of reading which was absolutely incapacitating me in terms of entering it. What can I ask you? So, I mean, it sounds like you couldn't even bear to read the book. I mean that this thing that giving you so much pleasure was eliciting the exact opposite emotions in you owe. Magna, I'm embarrassed to report that I literally questioned why the Nobel prize for literature had ever been given. And then I thought, I wonder if HarperCollins would ever publish this book today.
