Find out why the brain "learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases" and much more. If you enjoy telling stories, writing stories, or listening to stories check out this post to learn more!

44Doors's curator insight, March 11, 2014 10:27 AM

"Quick last fact: Our brain learns to ignore certain overused words and phrases that used to make stories awesome"
