Dyslexic children of lower socioeconomic status benefit more from summer reading programs than their more affluent peers, a new study reports.
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.
Researchers claim less gray matter in the brains of those with dyslexia is a consequence of poorer reading experiences and not the root cause of the disorder.
A new study sheds light on how reading shapes our brain and can improve our memory. Those who are not practiced readers, researchers discovered, find it more difficult to distinguish how an object is oriented in space.
Researchers report a gene associated with dyslexia may interfere with speech processing.
Findings shed light on possible causes for reading disorders such as dyslexia.
Researchers have developed a new method to observe brain activity during natural reading.
Major step in understanding the cause of dyslexia is taken. Scientists have discovered an important neural mechanism underlying dyslexia and shown that many difficulties associated with dyslexia can potentially be traced back to a malfunction of the medial geniculate body in the thalamus.
