How brain science can make you a better writer

A TV ad for kayak.com features an unscrupulous doctor manipulating a patient’s exposed brain, turning him into a puppet who flails away at a keyboard hunting and pecking for online travel deals. It’s funny to some,offensive to others, but it illustrates a larger point that is important for writers. The brain influences the way readers respond to words, for better or worse.

 

A growing body of research reveals that different parts of the brain respond to language in unique ways. Neuroscientists learned this by observing brain scans as subjects read. Writers can take advantage of these findings to connect with readers in deep, intimate and lasting ways. And you don’t have to be a brain scientist to do it, just apply the same kind of techniques that writing teachers have been preaching for years.

Michael Lara, MD's insight:

This article addresses the common misperception that psychopaths (or more accurately, sociopaths) lack empathy.
