Perception of the speech code.
Functional disruption in the organization of the brain for reading in dyslexia.
TLDR
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging to compare brain activation patterns in dyslexic and nonimpaired subjects as they performed tasks that made progressively greater demands on phonologic analysis supports a conclusion that the impairment in Dyslexia is phonologic in nature.
The discrimination of speech sounds within and across phoneme boundaries.
TLDR
Whether or not, with similar acoustic differences, a listener can better discriminate betweenSounds that lie on opposite sides of a phoneme boundary than he can between sounds that fall within the same phoneme category is examined.
Acoustic Loci and Transitional Cues for Consonants
Previous studies with synthetic speech have shown that second‐formant transitions are cues for the perception of the stop and nasal consonants. The results of those experiments can be simplified if
An effect of linguistic experience: The discrimination of [r] and [l] by native speakers of Japanese and English
To test the effect of linguistic experience on the perception of a cue that is known to be effective in distinguishing between [r] and [l] in English, 21 Japanese and 39 American adults were tested

Cognitive Profiles of Reading-Disabled Children: Comparison of Language Skills in Phonology, Morphology, and Syntax
A comprehensive cognitive appraisal of elementary school children with learning disabilities showed that within the language sphere, deficits associated with reading disability are selective

The Angular Gyrus in Developmental Dyslexia: Task-Specific Differences in Functional Connectivity Within Posterior Cortex
TLDR
The findings support the view that neurobiological anomalies in developmental dyslexia are largely confined to the phonological-processing domain and suggest that right-hemisphere posterior regions serve a compensatory role in mediating phonological performance in dyslexic readers.
