Out‐of‐synchrony speech entrainment in developmental dyslexia
Developmental dyslexia is a reading disorder often characterized by reduced awareness of speech units. Whether the neural source of this phonological disorder in dyslexic readers results from theExpand

Developmental evaluation of atypical auditory sampling in dyslexia: Functional and structural evidence
Whether phonological deficits in developmental dyslexia are associated with impaired neural sampling of auditory information at either syllabic‐ or phonemic‐rates is still under debate. In addition,Expand

Phase−amplitude coupling between theta and gamma oscillations adapts to speech rate
Low‐ and high‐frequency cortical oscillations play an important role in speech processing. Low‐frequency neural oscillations in the delta (<4 Hz) and theta (4–8 Hz) bands entrain to the prosodic andExpand

Delta(but not theta)‐band cortical entrainment involves speech‐specific processing
Cortical oscillations phase‐align to the quasi‐rhythmic structure of the speech envelope. This speech–brain entrainment has been reported in two frequency bands, that is both in the theta band (4–8Expand

Is there a common oscillatory brain mechanism for producing and predicting language?
TLDR
We have reviewed recent findings emerging from oscillatory analysis of high temporal resolution measures (electrophysiological brain activity) collected before the presentation of an expected stimulus, to explore the parallels in processing between prediction and production. Expand

Low frequency overactivation in dyslexia: Evidence from resting state Magnetoencephalography
TLDR
In this study, we compared the brain activation profiles obtained from resting state Magnetoencephalographic (MEG) activity in 15 dyslexic patients with the profiles of 15 normal controls, using power spectral density (PSD) analysis. Expand

Numbers are not like words: Different pathways for literacy and numeracy
TLDR
We find brain activation differences for literacy and numeracy from early stages of processing in the temporal-occipital and temporal-parietal regions. Expand

Amodal Atypical Neural Oscillatory Activity in Dyslexia
It has been proposed that atypical neural oscillations in both the auditory and the visual modalities could explain why some individuals fail to learn to read and suffer from developmental dyslexia.Expand

The Role of Slow Speech Amplitude Envelope for Speech Processing and Reading Development
This study examined the putative link between the entrainment to the slow rhythmic structure of speech, speech intelligibility and reading by means of a behavioral paradigm. Two groups of 20 childrenExpand
