This Is Your Brain On Dyslexia
It’s a safe bet that dyslexics and non-dyslexics have different patterns of brain activity while reading. The real questions are, how do these patterns differ and do the differences shed any light on the possible causes of dyslexia. Researchers from Boston University, the MGH Institute of Health Professions and MIT used fMRI to address these questions and found results that were both unexpected and informative. Their work was reported on Dec. 21, 2016 in the journal Neuron.
