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.
Sex differences in the functional organization of the brain for language
The data provide clear evidence for a sex difference in the functional organization of the brain for language and indicate that these variations exist at the level of phonological processing.
Functional neuroimaging studies of reading and reading disability (developmental dyslexia).
- K. Pugh, W. Mencl, +5 authors B. Shaywitz
- Psychology, MedicineMental retardation and developmental disabilities…
This work proposes a neurobiological account suggesting that for normally developing readers the dorsal circuit predominates at first, and is associated with analytic processing necessary for learning to integrate orthographic features with phonological and lexical-semantic features of printed words.
Cerebral organization of component processes in reading.

- 1 August 1996
The cerebral organization of word identification processes in reading was examined using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and a strategy of multiple subtractions was employed in order to validate relationships between structure and function.
DCDC2 is associated with reading disability and modulates neuronal development in the brain.

RT-PCR data show that DCDC2 localizes to the regions of the brain where fluent reading occurs, and RNA interference studies show that down-regulation alters neuronal migration.
Neurobiological studies of reading and reading disability.
An Event-related Neuroimaging Study Distinguishing Form and Content in Sentence Processing
- W. Ni, R. Constable, +6 authors D. Shankweiler
- Psychology, MedicineJournal of Cognitive Neuroscience
The results confirm that linguistic operations in sentence processing can be isolated from nonlinguistic operations and support the hypothesis of a specialization for syntactic processing.
