Those who received explicit instructions about the relationship between sound and spelling experienced dramatic improvements in their reading ability.
Neuroimaging study reveals a biological deficit in some children with dyslexia that impairs phonological decoding.
Researchers say most people are not aware that two forms of the letter 'g' exist and, for those who are aware, most can not correctly identify or write the typeset version we usually see. The findings suggest the important role writing styles play in letter learning.
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.
Reading ability in kindergarten predicted later reading, math and language skills in children. Researchers say adding language to 'kindergarten readiness' skills can help to improve academic success in other subject areas.
Researchers study event related potentials to help predict children's reading levels in years to come.
Researchers have developed a new method to observe brain activity during natural reading.
The first two years of primary education are a critical point for the development of the brain's reading network in children, researchers say.
Researchers link physical fitness in children to increased gray matter volume in areas of the brain implicated in language processing and reading skills.
Using a green filter help to increase reading speed for children with dyslexia, researchers report.
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.
