Abstract: PhotoReading, also called the whole-mind reading system, is a strategic reading method created by Paul R. Scheele. This system allows reading one page per second, or what it is the same, 25.000 words per minute with a 70%-comprehension approximately (Scheele, 2003). This project aims to determine the method's effectiveness compared to the traditional reading method, taking into account reading speed and comprehension as the main dependent variables. For this purpose, a bibliographic review has been carried out to analyze the empirical evidence resulting from the method and an analysis of the evidence provided by educational psychology and cognitive neuroscience about the techniques used in the PhotoReading method. On the other hand, a research proposal has been designed to test the method's effectiveness using the techniques previously explored in the results of the review and comparing them with the traditional reading method. Finally, this research proposal aims to evaluate the neural correlates through EEG by applying the techniques proposed by this system to determine the brain areas involved in each learning process. We consider that this project can enhance knowledge about the processes of learning and processing of unconscious and preconscious information. We hope to favour future research focused on new learning and information processing processes that are more effective and in line with the needs of today's societies.
