A literature review concerning dyslexia, including several empi ri cal studies and work of a more theoretical nature, suggests that there is a connection between creative activity and developmental dyslexia. The aim of our research was to test the hy pothesis that such a correlation exists, and that creativity can be trained in dyslexic persons. 40 students in their first years of college study took part in the experiment: 20 dyslexic students diagnosed in school, and 20 non-dyslexic students…

MEMORY IMPAIRMENTS IN ADULTS WITH DYSLEXIA

The aim of our study was to analyze the functioning of various aspects of memory in adults with developmental dys lexia, as compared to adults without developmental dyslexia. Our research involved a

The alleged link between creativity and dyslexia: Identifying the specific process in which dyslexic students excel

Abstract It is often argued that individuals with developmental dyslexia (DD) are particularly creative. In order to test this claim, in Study 1 the WCR (widening, connecting and reorganizing)

Creativity and intelligence in children with and without developmental dyslexia

This study aimed to verify if the creativity of children with Developmental Dyslexia (CG; n = 13) differs from children without difficulties in reading and writing (NG; n = 13). Furthermore, we

STRATEGIES OF RHYTHM PERCEPTION IN DEVELOPMENTAL DYSLEXIA

The perception of short time intervals (>1Hz) plays an important role in coping with rhythm exercises prevalent throughout the course of music education. Developmental dyslexia is associated with

ANALYSIS OF BRAIN ACTIVATION IN TEENAGERS WITH ISOLATED DYSORTHOGRAPHY ( SPELLING DISORDER ) AND GOOD SPELLERS DURING A SPELLING ASSESSMENT TASK

TLDR
Brain activation is described in a group of teenagers with isolated dysorthography vs. teenagers with good spelling skills, during a task involving the assessment of spelling accuracy in words containing an orthographic difficulty, to allow for conclusions relating to neural mechanisms underlying the isolated developmental disorder connected with learning to spell.

Self-concept, creativity and developmental dyslexia in university students: Effects of age of assessment.

Educational experiences often influence self-concept. Thus, readers with dyslexia can have low self-esteem and self-efficacy, and perceive themselves as less intelligent than their peers. They may

PHONEMIC AWARENESS AMONG MONO- AND BILINGUAL CHILDREN

Contemporary psycholinguistic research has shown that bilinguals have two differentiated linguistic systems, which interact with each other in different ways and in different domains, including

An eye for the unusual: creative thinking in dyslexics

This article describes a series of studies investigating the relationship between developmental dyslexia and creative talents. Tasks performed by the subjects included: finding alternative uses for

The prevalence of dyslexia among art students.

TLDR
Objective testing showed that art students had significantly poorer phonological skills than non-art students, and according to self-reports combined with objective testing, the incidence of dyslexia was far higher among art students than among university students.

Dyslexia, Learning, and the Brain

Dyslexia research has made dramatic progress since the mid-1980s. Once discounted as a "middle-class myth," dyslexia is now the subject of a complex -- and confusing -- body of theoretical and

The magnocellular theory of developmental dyslexia.

TLDR
There is evidence that most reading problems have a fundamental sensorimotor cause and good magnocellular function is essential for high motion sensitivity and stable binocular fixation, hence proper development of orthographic skills.

Physiological and anatomical evidence for a magnocellular defect in developmental dyslexia.

TLDR
It is found that dyslexic subjects showed diminished visually evoked potentials to rapid, low-cont contrast stimuli but normal responses to slow or high-contrast stimuli, which is consistent with a defect in the magnocellular pathway at the level of visual area 1 or earlier.

Attentional deficit in dyslexia: a general or specific impairment?

TLDR
The results show that dyslexics are impaired with respect to controls in the attentional conflict component (resolution of conflict of incongruent peripheral information), while the alerting and orienting components remain preserved.

From the Publisher: In this updated edition to his fascinating exploration of the "ironies of creativity," Thomas West furthers his ground-breaking research on how some innovations in computer

Neural correlates of rapid auditory processing are disrupted in children with developmental dyslexia and ameliorated with training: an fMRI study.

TLDR
The presence of a disruption in the neural response to rapid stimuli in children with developmental dyslexia prior to remediation, coupled with significant improvement in language and reading scores and increased brain activation after remediation gives further support to the importance of rapid auditory processing in reading development and disorders.

Luminance and chromatic contrast sensitivity in dyslexia: the magnocellular deficit hypothesis revisited

TLDR
The hypothesis of a magnocellular channel deficit in dyslexia was tested and the typical finding of an increase contrast sensitivity to low spatial frequency gratings, due to their dynamic presentations, was absent in Dyslexics.
