Neural intersections of the phonological, visual magnocellular and motor/cerebellar systems in normal readers: Implications for imaging studies on dyslexia
Human Brain Mapping, 07/18/2012
Danelli L et al. – The region of decreased activation in dyslexia overlapped with regions that are specific for reading and those activated during both the auditory rhyming task and the single word and pseudoword reading task described in the present fMRI study. No overlap was found with the activation patterns for the visual motion perception task or for the motor sequence learning task. These observations challenge current theories of dyslexia.
