Effects of Lexicality, Frequency, and Spelling-to-Sound Consistency on the Functional Anatomy of Reading


Functional neuroimaging was used to investigate three factors that affect reading performance: first, whether a stimulus is a word or pronounceable non-word (lexicality), second, how often a word is encountered (frequency), and third, whether the pronunciation has a predictable spelling-to-sound correspondence (consistency).
