Studies of brain asymmetry in dyslexia have yielded mixed results both with respect to patterns of asymmetry and their cognitive correlates. This paper assessed language lateralisation inferred from dichotic listening with forced attention in a clinical group of young dyslexic subjects. As a whole the dyslexic group showed a deviant asymmetry pattern compared to a control group. Subdivision into two subgroups by receptive language abilities yielded differential patterns within the dyslexia… Expand
Altered hemispheric specialization for speech in adult dyslexic readers: An ERPs and dichotic listening study
Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the functional speech lateralization in adult dyslexic readers whose native language is Hebrew. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 22Expand
Hemispheric laterality assessment with dichotic digits testing in dyslexia and auditory processing disorder
TLDR
Assessment of laterality in an adult sample of individuals with dyslexia, with auditory processing disorder (APD), and adults experiencing comorbidity of the two mentioned disorders against a control group with normal hearing and absence of learning disabilities indicates a true deficit. Expand
Dichotic listening and school performance in dyslexia.
TLDR
The present study points to the use of DL as a valid assessment tool in clinical work to improve differential diagnoses, particularly in relation to measures of school performance. Expand
Auditive training effects from a dichotic listening app in children with dyslexia
TLDR
The ability to modulate attention during DL is weaker in dyslexia than in typically developing children, and a training‐induced normalisation of lateralisation was observed in free recall in the Dyslexia group, which suggests that DL training may be a promising intervention approach. Expand
Dyslexia at a behavioural and a cognitive level.
TLDR
It was concluded that assessing neuro-cognitive assets and deficits targeting dyslexia is essential to intervention and the understanding of Dyslexia. Expand
Significant relation between MR measures of planum temporale area and dichotic processing of syllables in dyslexic children
TLDR
Differences between dyslexic and normal reading children in asymmetry of the planum temporale area in the upper posterior part of the temporal lobe and dichotic listening performance to consonant-vowel syllables are investigated. Expand
Dyslexia in English as a second language.
TLDR
The results were tentatively discussed within the framework of biological and cognitive models of how to interpret L2 performance in dyslexia, underlining the importance of further research in L2 acquisition in Dyslexia. Expand
Visual-Sequential and Visuo-Spatial Skills in Dyslexia: Variations According to Language Comprehension and Mathematics Skills

  • 2003
TLDR
The results show that the visuo-spatial impairments seen in one of the dyslexia subgroups lead to two ways of understanding mathematics impairment when it co-occurs with Dyslexia: (1) as a Visuo-Spatial problem; (2) asA linguistic problem, which should imply different intervention strategies in dyslexi.

The Role of Dichotic Listening Performance and Tasks of Executive Functions in Reading Impairment: A Discriminant Function Analysis
TLDR
The result indicates that DL together with tests of executive functions are valuable tools for assessment of reading impaired subjects, and together with other measures of executive function analyses yielded 90.74% accuracy in classifying reading impaired children. Expand
Hemispheric predominance assessment of phonology and semantics: A divided visual field experiment
TLDR
The results suggest that the characteristics of stimuli could influence the degree of the hemispheric lateralization, and the emotional charge of stimuli for words and the position of the phoneme to be detected, for pseudo-words. Expand

The data support a hypothesis suggesting executive problems in dyslexia, depending on receptive language skills, depends on receptivelanguage skills. Expand
Dyslexia, laterality and short term memory
The question is raised whether anomalous laterality in dyslexics covaries with cognitive functions essential to reading and writing. A group of dyslexic boys and girls (age 9–17) was investigatedExpand
NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL DEFICITS IN ADULTS WITH DYSLEXIA
TLDR
The results suggest that adult dyslexia is not ‘isolated’, but is one expression of a widespread left‐hemisphere dysfunction. Expand
Impaired visual word processing in dyslexia revealed with magnetoencephalography
TLDR
A striking difference was found in the left inferior temporo‐occipital region where intracranial recordings have recently identified word‐specific responses within 200 msec after stimulus onset: controls showed a sharp activation at about 180 msec after word presentation, whereas dyslexics failed to activate this area entirely, or showed a slowly increasing late response.

Functional Asymmetry of the Brain in Dichotic Listening
Summary This paper reviews the evidence relating lateral asymmetry in auditory perception to the asymmetrical functioning of the two hemispheres of the brain. Because each ear has greater neuralExpand
Planum temporale, planum parietale and dichotic listening in dyslexia
TLDR
The present population-based study adds to recent reports of normal PT asymmetry in dyslexia, but indicates that subtle morphological abnormalities in the left planar area may be present in this condition. Expand

TLDR
The rhymed fused dichotic words test was administered to 61 epileptic patients whose lesions were atrophic and predominantly unilateral and found that stimulus dominance effects have an important influence on the results, and must be taken into account in the interpretation of dichotic listening asymmetries.

MRI evaluation of the size and symmetry of the planum temporale in adolescents with developmental dyslexia
TLDR
All subjects with pure phonological deficits in reading had symmetrical plana temporale indicating a possible neuroanatomical basis for a characteristic symptom of linguistic processing deficiency in developmental dyslexia. Expand
Absence of ear advantage on the consonant-vowel dichotic listening test in adolescent and adult dyslexics: specific auditory-phonetic dysfunction.
TLDR
The main finding was the absence of an expected right-ear advantage (REA) in the right-handed dyslexic group as compared to theRight-handed normal readers, which is a basic auditory-phonetic processing dysfunction in developmental dyslexia that persists into adulthood. Expand
