Word length effect in early reading and in developmental dyslexia
Vocal reaction times were measured in Italian dyslexics and in proficient readers while they read single words. Three groups of control participants (for a total of 79) were tested. All were in theExpand

Markers of developmental surface dyslexia in a language (Italian) with high grapheme–phoneme correspondence
This article examines the characteristics of surface dyslexia in a language (Italian) with high grapheme–phoneme correspondence. The reading performances of four boys are reported. The mostExpand

Electrophysiological evidence for an early attentional mechanism in visual processing in humans
The effect of sustained spatial attention on a task-irrelevant grating displayed in the left visual field was studied by steady-state and transient visual evoked potentials (VEP). For theExpand

Identification of the neural sources of the pattern-reversal VEP
TLDR
This study aimed to characterize the neural generators of the early components of the visual-evoked potential (VEP) elicited by a pattern-reversal stimulus in the first 200 ms poststimulus. Expand

Spatiotemporal analysis of the cortical sources of the steady‐state visual evoked potential
This study aimed to characterize the neural generators of the steady‐state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) to repetitive, 6 Hz pattern‐reversal stimulation. Multichannel scalp recordings of SSVEPsExpand

Eye movement patterns in linguistic and non-linguistic tasks in developmental surface dyslexia
Ten subjects who could be reliably assessed as surface dyslexics were selected on the basis of a large test battery. Eye movements in non-linguistic and linguistic tasks were studied in theseExpand

Crowding, reading, and developmental dyslexia.
We tested the hypothesis that crowding effects are responsible for the reading slowness characteristic of developmental dyslexia. A total of twenty-nine Italian dyslexics and thirty-three age-matchedExpand

Color and Luminance Contrasts Attract Independent Attention
Paying attention can improve vision in many ways, including some very basic functions such as contrast discrimination, a task that probably reflects very early levels of visual processing.Expand

Prefrontal hyperactivity in older people during motor planning
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess the influence of age-related changes in cortical activity related to the motor preparation involved in simple- and discriminative-reaction tasks. Expand

Evidence for edge and bar detectors in human vision
The structure of receptive fields of human visual detectors was investigated by studying their phase response. Observers were required to discriminate between pairs of periodic stimuli that differedExpand
