We used fMRI to explore the extent of the anatomical overlap of three neural systems that the literature on developmental dyslexia associates with reading: the auditory phonological, the visual magnocellular, and the motor/cerebellar systems. Twenty-eight normal subjects performed four tasks during fMRI scans: word and pseudoword reading, auditory rhyming for letter names, visual motion perception, and a motor sequence learning task. We found that the left occipitotemporal cortex (OTC), which… CONTINUE READING
