Developmental Dyslexia Essential to Human Adaptive Success
[Source: Science Daily]
Cambridge researchers studying cognition, behavior and the brain have concluded that people with dyslexia are specialized to explore the unknown. This is likely to play a fundamental role in human adaptation to changing environments.
They think this “explorative bias” has an evolutionary basis and plays a crucial role in our survival.
Based on these findings — which were apparent across multiple domains from visual processing to memory and at all levels of analysis — the researchers argue that we need to change our perspective of dyslexia as a neurological disorder.
