Music, rhythm, rise time perception and developmental dyslexia: Perception of musical meter predicts reading and phonology
INTRODUCTION Rhythm organises musical events into patterns and forms, and rhythm perception in music is usually studied by using metrical tasks. Metrical structure also plays an organisationalExpand

Rise time and formant transition duration in the discrimination of speech sounds: the Ba-Wa distinction in developmental dyslexia.
Across languages, children with developmental dyslexia have a specific difficulty with the neural representation of the sound structure (phonological structure) of speech. One likely cause of theirExpand

Perception of patterns of musical beat distribution in phonological developmental dyslexia: Significant longitudinal relations with word reading and reading comprehension
INTRODUCTION In a recent study, we reported that the accurate perception of beat structure in music ('perception of musical meter') accounted for over 40% of the variance in single word reading inExpand

Auditory sensory deficits in developmental dyslexia: A longitudinal ERP study
The core difficulty in developmental dyslexia across languages is a "phonological deficit", a specific difficulty with the neural representation of the sound structure of words. Recent data acrossExpand

Impaired perception of syllable stress in children with dyslexia: A longitudinal study
Prosodic patterning is a key structural element of spoken language. However, the potential role of prosodic awareness in the phonological difficulties that characterise children with developmentalExpand

Perception of Filtered Speech by Children with Developmental Dyslexia and Children with Specific Language Impairments
Here we use two filtered speech tasks to investigate children’s processing of slow (<4 Hz) versus faster (∼33 Hz) temporal modulations in speech. We compare groups of children with eitherExpand

N1, P2 and T-complex of the auditory brain event-related potentials to tones with varying rise times in adults with and without dyslexia.
Dyslexia is a learning difficulty affecting the acquisition of fluent reading and spelling skills due to poor phonological processing. Underlying deficits in processing sound rise time have also beenExpand

Basic Auditory Processing Skills and Phonological Awareness in Low-IQ Readers and Typically Developing Controls
We explore the relationships between basic auditory processing, phonological awareness, vocabulary, and word reading in a sample of 95 children, 55 typically developing children, and 40 children withExpand

Measuring auditory discrimination thresholds in preschool children: An empirically based analysis
Auditory discrimination is an important perceptual skill that seems to develop substantially during early childhood and is predictive of key developmental outcomes like language ability. Ho...

Correction to: Basic Auditory Processing Skills and Phonological Awareness in Low-IQ Readers and Typically Developing Controls
It has come to the attention of the authors that the article “Basic Auditory Processing Skills and Phonological Awareness in Low-IQ Readers and Typically Developing Controls,” published in ScientificExpand
