Do you prefer reading on paper or on a screen? Whatever your answer, research shows that your brain may still prefer paper. Reading relies on areas of the brain dedicated to object recognition, meaning your brain creates a mental map of the entire text and uses physical placement to remember content (for example: bottom corner of the left page). Most digital devices interfere with this ability to map text, which can inhibit reading comprehension. In addition, scrolling can use up cognitive resources by forcing you to concentrate on the text’s movement — and the more attention you divert to motion, the less you have to spare for comprehension.
