Developmental dyslexia has been associated with both abnormal hemispheric symmetry of the planum temporale (PT) and a deficit in the magnocellular visual pathway. We examined the relationship between these two abnormalities. Using sagittal magnetic resonance images and three methods, we measured the PT in dyslexic subjects with a documented magnocellular deficit and controls. Dyslexic subjects did not deviate from normal leftward PT asymmetry, but both groups became less left-lateralized with… CONTINUE READING
