A new book helps researchers screen for potential reading difficulties in young children.
Researchers argue those with dyslexia are specialized to explore the unknown. This explorative bias has an evolutionary basis that plays a crucial role in human survival.
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.
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.
Researchers identified genetic variants that can predispose children to dyslexia and language impairment. The study could allow for earlier diagnosis and more successful interventions for language impairment disorders.
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.
A new study reports learning and behavioral difficulties during childhood can lead to social problems during adolescence for those with epilepsy, even when it is well controlled.
Researchers report high density of neurons in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex play a significant role in resilient dyslexia.
Researchers have developed a new method to observe brain activity during natural reading.
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.
