Children whose mothers were exposed to PBDE flame retardants while pregnancy had less efficient reading networks, and increased risk of developing reading disorders.
New findings dispute the popular cerebellar deficit hypothesis of dyslexia. Researchers report the cerebellum is not engaged during reading in typical readers and does not differ in children with dyslexia.
The left and right hemispheres of the brain are characterized by different word processing strategies.
fMRI brain scans reveal semantic tuning during both reading and listening to words are highly correlated in selective areas of the cerebral cortex. The new brain maps enabled researchers to accurately predict which words would active specific regions of the cortex.
Researchers propose Leonardo da Vinci's dyslexia may have contributed to his creativity and artistic skills.
Contrary to popular belief, developmental dyslexia is not caused by a structural dysfunction in the cerebral cortex, researchers report. A new study reveals developmental dyslexia is the result of a decrease in white matter connectivity between the mPT and MGB.

A new neuroimaging study reveals tasks that require audiovisual processing are extremely difficult for children with dyslexia. The findings could lead to new tests that help identify the disorder before children fall behind their peers.
Using a green filter help to increase reading speed for children with dyslexia, researchers report.
According to researchers, 10% of young children have trouble learning to write. EPFL researchers have developed new software that can analyze a child's writing disability and the cause with precision.
Researchers report high density of neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex play a significant role in resilient dyslexia.
