The Brain Spells
The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid. I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulacity uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. Aoccdrnig to rsceearh taem at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Such a cdonition is arppoiately cllaed Typoglycemia. Amzanig huh? Yaeh and yuo awlyas thought slpeling was ipmorantt.
**i'm not sure about the accuracy of the name "typoglycemia". . doesn't sound legit to me! "glycemia" means "the presence of glucose". . its a medical term. I would think this amazing condition would be called something like typoglossia. . i don't know? ('glossa' means tongue) maybe as it pertains to language, etc. Regardless of what its called. . . its STILL fascinating!!!!***
