Unfamiliar story more enjoyable after looking at appealing images

“Simply looking at images of food that appeals to you can make something taste better, according to a new study by scientists at the Nestlé Research Center in Switzerland.”

I guess one could imagine this reasoning applies to story reading too.

Our eyes are a hugely important instrument for communication.

Eye contact with image processes important emotional information to us. People, often without consciously doing so, probe images or positive or negative moodsigns, just like in eye-to-eye contact with other human faces.

What’s more is that eyes send images to our brains. By providing images in addition to text, we can influence and make it more easy for our eyes to understand the text or what is being said. A side note however, if that we need to make sure that we do not overkill with images so our brains become lazy and loose the ability to think creatively.

Our eyes are our visual system. Our eyes visualize the written or spoken story. In particular those which are still unfamiliar to us.

So, if you are keen to transmit or digest new information and knowledge this week, make sure you get a stories with taste and clear vision.

Have a delicious Doodle week!
