Audiobooks as Medicine?

I recently read a blog post on the Audiobook Blog that mentioned an article about research done with stroke patients and audiobooks. According to the abstract provided, the patients who listened to audiobooks recovered their auditory sensory memory faster than those who listened to music instead of books, and much quicker than those who did not listen to either.

The author also wonders about audiobooks and focused attention and whether the slower pace of the audibook gives the listener more time to digest the material as opposed to a visual reader who often "gulps" down a book they've been dying to read. ~ Anna
