This is Your Brain on Doodling

doodlerEver been caught drawing in class, during a meeting or while listening to someone blabbing on and on? I certainly have. Next time someone accuses you of doodling, though, tell them you are actually listening intently -- and that science is on your side. A recently published brain study shows doodling actually helps people concentrate. Apparently the listening part of your brain works better when the drawing part of your brain is occupied -- it keeps you from daydreaming and spacing out altogether. Sadly, the study did not conclude that doodlers are smarter than non-doodlers (heh heh). The study was kind of small -- just 20 people were studied in each given task, so some might argue the data is statistically insignificant. I don't care though. I'll take any pro-doodling stance I can get.
