It is found that dyslexic subjects showed diminished visually evoked potentials to rapid, low-cont contrast stimuli but normal responses to slow or high-contrast stimuli, which is consistent with a defect in the magnocellular pathway at the level of visual area 1 or earlier.
Cytoarchitectonic organization of the human auditory cortex
A survey of normative human brains processed in whole‐brain serial sections disclosed a cytoarchitectonic organization of the cortical auditory region similar to that in the macaque.

The neuroanatomical findings in 4 consecutively studied brains of men with developmental dyslexia are discussed with reference to developmental cortical anomalies, cerebral asymmetries, reorganization of the brain after early lesions, and the association between learning disorders, left handedness, and diseases of the immune system.
Topographical variation of the human primary cortices: implications for neuroimaging, brain mapping, and neurobiology.
Direct reference to the landmarks that frame these fields may be expected to be a more reliable basis for functional mapping thanreference to a template or stereotactic coordinate-based system of reference to a standard or idealized brain.
Cerebral lateralization. Biological mechanisms, associations, and pathology: I. A hypothesis and a program for research.
The hypothesis is that slowed growth within certain zones of the left hemisphere is likely to result in enlargement of other cortical regions, in particular, the homologous contralateral area, but also adjacent unfaffected regions.

Cross-sectional neuronal areas in the medial geniculate nuclei of five dyslexic and seven control brains showed asymmetry, which is consistent with reported behavioral findings of a left hemisphere-based phonological defect in Dyslexic individuals.
The intrinsic architectonic and connectional organization of the superior temporal region of the rhesus monkey
The superior temporal region in the rhesus monkey includes the circular sulcus, the supratemporal plane (STP), and the superior temporal gyrus (STG), which is characterized by well‐developed layer IV; and the STG fields (belt fields) exhibit strong differentiation of layer III.
Bridging cognition, the brain and molecular genetics: evidence from Williams syndrome
An Experiment of Nature: Brain Anatomy Parallels Cognition and Behavior in Williams Syndrome
Findings point to specific neuroanatomical correlates for the unique topography of cognitive and behavioral features associated with this disorder.
