Our Brains Like Narratives

From the May 22 New York Times science section:
"Researchers have found that the human brain has a natural affinity for narrative construction. People tend to remember facts more accurately if they encounter them in a story rather than in a list, studies find; and they rate legal arguments as more convincing when built into narrative tales rather than on legal precedent."
No surprise to us, is it?

The NYT is free, but you have to register.
