The Writer Who Could Not Read

I depend upon NPR for much of my news and entertainment.  This is the story of a man who was an author, but due to a brain injury, was no longer able to read what he wrote (alexia).  Absolutely fascinating.  The case also deals with brain specialization.

Thanks so much for passing this clip along. Tomorrow's the big Neuroscience Test day in my AP Psych classes and I've slipped this in as part of the take home section. Your timing is excellent!
