Four genetic regions have been identified as playing a role in left-handedness. Three of the four genes were associated with proteins involved in brain development and structure. Neuroimaging revealed those who were left-handed had increased functional connectivity between left and right language networks. Researchers also found correlations between the genetic regions associated with left-handedness and slightly reduced Parkinson's risk, but a slightly increased risk for schizophrenia.
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.
Combining neuroimaging data with artificial intelligence technology, researchers have identified a complex network within the brain that comprehends the meaning of spoken sentences.
Researchers discover learning complex auditory categories through procedural learning is impaired in dyslexia.
Brain responses from 6 month old infants with an inherited dyslexia risk differed from those without the risk factor and also predicted their reading ability later in childhood, a new study reveals.
If we can recognize the accent we hear, our brains are able to process foreign accented speech with better real time accuracy, a new study reports.
According to a new study, using tDCS to stimulate the left angular gyrus can enhance the comprehension of simple, two word phrases.
Words which refer to 'big', abstract things are processed more quickly by the brain than 'smaller' words, a new study suggests.
A small, preliminary study helps researchers identify a region of the brain that specializes in the processing of auditory words.
Researchers discover the brain mechanisms which underlie discourse comprehension.
Children at higher risk of ASD are less able to distinguish between differences in speech patterns. The findings suggest the biological mechanism of language development is less acquisitive in high-risk infants who are diagnosed with autism during toddlerhood.
