Fiction changes the brain - we knew this.....

Posted by Arqel on 10/05/2019

I was looking through some article links I'd stashed, and found this one called "Why Doesn't Ancient Fiction Talk About Feelings?". A matter of evolution, apparently. "Heavy readers of fiction showed the highest level of brain activity."

I'm not sure I accept the premise! There's a lot of emotion expressed or made pivotal in ancient lit and mythology--wonder what they're talking about? Are "feelings" different from emotions?
