Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone may be the perfect book for studying the human brain.  Researchers measured the brain activity of adult volunteers as they read chapter nine of the book by taking readings of the brain after every four words that were read in the chapter.

Experts say this is the first step in understanding what the brain does when someone reads.
