"Imaging studies on children now reveal how critical handwriting can be to the general learning process. In 2012, a study on pre-literate children found that when kids practiced handwriting letters freeform - rather than tracing or typing them out - they activated the brain’s reading circuit. This means that reading letters is influenced by drawing out the letters, not by typing or tracing them. And the better we write, the better we read. Handwriting quality is also linked to enhanced writing skills and reading. This neural link underlies how the brain processes sounds and can boost learning and memory of language. So take note: handwriting (not typing) your notes can enhance your memory of the lecture and may give you that edge when needed."
