From a recent paper about learning:
Previous research has shown that disfluency – the subjective experience of difficulty associated with cognitive operations – leads to deeper processing.
And here's the study:
Study 1 found that information in hard-to-read fonts was better remembered than easier to read information in a controlled laboratory setting.
Hat tip to the Frontal Cortex.
