The first two years of primary education are a critical point for the development of the brain's reading network in children, researchers say.
Neuroimaging study reveals a biological deficit in some children with dyslexia that impairs phonological decoding.
Children at high risk for dyslexia have trouble learning new words after hearing them, a new study reports. Results show those at risk of dyslexia have border difficulties in processing language in the brain, which may account for why reading difficulties occur.
Identifying musical dyslexia could help explain why some musicians are proficient at reading musical scores, while others excel when it comes to playing by ear.
A new book helps researchers screen for potential reading difficulties in young children.
Children with dyslexia show stronger emotional responses than their peers without the disorder. The higher emotional reactivity was correlated with stronger activation in the salience network of the brain, a system that supports self-awareness and emotion.
The characteristics of language structure and writing system may explain why some bilingual people are dyslexic in English, but not in their other proficient language.
People with dyslexia experience difficulties when acoustic variation was added to speech sounds. In the absence of the variation, neural speech sound processing was consistent between dyslexic and typical readers. Difficulties in detecting linguistically relevant information during acoustic variation in speech may contribute to a dyslexic person's deficits in forming native language phoneme representations during infancy.

A new web-based game that is independent of language can help to detect dyslexia in children.
A structural brain scaffold in infants serves as a foundation for literacy. Language and reading may refine this pre-existing brain scaffold. The study also reveals robust language networks activate while children sleep if stories are read to them during slumber.
