Lock table in database when doing write operation.

Based on my understanding, when we do write operation to a table in database (MYSQL) we lock the table from bein accessed by another processess. But not when we do read operation.
Is this true?

If yes, then is there a way I can turn of some settings so the write operation will not lock the table?
Is there any disadvantages in doing this?

Thanks in advance for the help.
