Since there are times and situations where sitting down with a book isn't feasible and many people will turn to the audio version. But is the experience the same?

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley wanted to answer that question, scanning the brains of nine subjects who were tasked with reading and listening to episodes of The Moth.

Turns out, whether by eyes or ears, however the story gets inside your head, the words register the same.
