In order to investigate the relationship between dyslexia and central auditory processing, 19 children with spelling disability and 15 controls at grades 5 and 6 were examined using a passive oddball paradigm. Mismatch negativity (MMN) was determined for tone and speech stimuli. While there were no group differences for the tone stimuli, we found a(More)
Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disorders affecting about 5% of all school-aged children. It has been shown that event-related potential measurements reveal differences between dyslexic children and age-matched controls. This holds particularly true for mismatch negativity (MMN), which reflects automatic speech deviance processing and is altered(More)
It has been hypothesized that auditory temporal processing plays a major role in the aetiology of dyslexia. Event-related brain potentials (mismatch negativity, MMN) of auditory temporal processing were assessed in 15 dyslectic adults and 20 controls. A complex tonal pattern was used where the difference between standard and deviant stimuli was the(More)
Deficits in phonological processing are known to play a major role in the aetiology of dyslexia, and speech perception is a prerequisite condition for phonological processing. Significant group differences between dyslexics and controls have been found in the categorical perception of synthetic speech stimuli. In a previous work, we have demonstrated that(More)
Dyslexia affects 5-10% of school-aged children and is therefore one of the most common learning disorders. Research on auditory event related potentials (AERP), particularly the mismatch negativity (MMN) component, has revealed anomalies in individuals with dyslexia to speech stimuli. Furthermore, candidate genes for this disorder were found through(More)
The aim of the present study was to characterize the EEG response pattern specific for tonic pain which is an experimental pain model resembling clinical pain more closely than phasic pain. Tonic experimental pain was produced by a series of heat pulses 1°C above pain threshold over 10 min. A series of heat pulses 0.3°C below pain threshold and a constant(More)
BACKGROUND  The relationship between phoneme awareness, rapid automatized naming (RAN), verbal short-term/working memory (ST/WM) and diagnostic category is investigated in control and dyslexic children, and the extent to which this depends on orthographic complexity. METHODS General cognitive, phonological and literacy skills were tested in 1,138 control(More)
This paper addresses the question whether the cognitive underpinnings of reading and spelling are universal or language/orthography-specific. We analyzed concurrent predictions of phonological processing (awareness and memory) and rapid automatized naming (RAN) for literacy development in a Adolescent Psychiatry, Psychosomatics, and Psychotherapy,(More)
It has been repeatedly shown that mismatch negativity (MMN), an event related potential measurement, reveals differences between dyslexic children and age-matched controls. MMN reflects the automatic detection of deviance between a stream of incoming sounds presented to the passive listener, and deficits in MMN (i.e. attenuated amplitudes) have been(More)
There is controversial evidence that deficits in the processing of low contrast and low spatial frequency stimuli are of importance in the pathogenesis of dyslexia. Fifteen adult dyslexics and 19 controls were examined using visual evoked potentials (VEP) at varying spatial frequencies (2 and 11.33 cpd) and contrasts (0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8). Our results show(More)
