reading as virtual reality

Here’s a short radio segment on NPR in which it is suggested that reading creates simulations in the mind of what is described in the text. Interesting that we seem to interpret the information practically, so that we’re learning about physical operations without even carrying them out. This ability must have some evolutionary benefit in teaching and learning.
