A qualitative and quantitative review of diffusion tensor imaging studies in reading and dyslexia
In this review paper we address whether deficits in reading (i.e. developmental dyslexia) are rooted in neurobiological anomalies in white matter tracts. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) offers anExpand

Spatial Speech Perception Benefits in Young Children With Normal Hearing and Cochlear Implants
Objectives: Several studies have demonstrated better speech perception performance in children using two rather than one cochlear implant (CI). The extent to which bilaterally implanted childrenExpand

Predictors of Spoken Language Development Following Pediatric Cochlear Implantation
Objectives: Although deaf children with cochlear implants (CIs) are able to develop good language skills, the large variability in outcomes remains a significant concern. The first aim of this studyExpand
