Development of Ventral Stream Representations for Single Letters
Visual form recognition is mediated by the ventral extrastriate processing stream. Some regions of ventral stream cortex show preferential activity for specific stimulus categories, but little is
Improve ability and skills of beginning reading without spelling by using andriod-based macromedia flash media application
Students read faster and more skilled at reading without spelling using an android-based reading application using class action and uses Android-based applications without spelling.
Cognition-Based Interactive Phases and Strategies in Teaching Academic Reading
Academic English reading requires deeper cognitive involvement in addition to language proficiency and plays a vital role in moulding a critical mindset. However, cognitive progress is seldom

How do we not communicate about dyslexia? – The discourses that distance scientists, disabilities staff, ALL advisers, students, and lecturers from one another
While the number of students identified as dyslexic has risen dramatically in the last twenty years, dyslexia has become a grey area traversed by very disparate discourses – medical,

Reading Systems: An introduction to Digital Document Processing.
A detailed comparison between the human and the artificial reading system is made and even today, methods for generating a new document are still more advanced and mature than are the methods for processing an existing document.

Functional Neuroanatomical Differences Between Adults and School-Age Children in the Processing of Single Words
Direct comparisons of brain activation in the left frontal and extrastriate cortex were made in adults and children performing single-word processing tasks with visual presentation, suggesting that maturation of the pattern of regional activations for these tasks is incomplete at age 10.
The nature of phonological processing and its causal role in the acquisition of reading skills.
Three bodies of research that have developed in relative isolation center on each of three kinds of phonological processing: phonological awareness, awareness of the sound structure of language;

Age-Related Changes in Regional Brain Activation During Phonological Decoding and Printed Word Recognition
The data suggest that the degree of specialization of cortical regions for reading, as well as the pattern of regional interactions that supports this specialization, may change with age.

Neurobiological studies of reading and reading disability.
Cerebral organization of component processes in reading.
The cerebral organization of word identification processes in reading was examined using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and a strategy of multiple subtractions was employed in order to validate relationships between structure and function.

This review discusses how neuroimaging can contribute to the authors' understanding of a fundamental aspect of skilled reading: the ability to pronounce a visually presented word and highlights the importance of spelling-to-sound consistency in the transformation from orthographic (word form) to phonological (word sound) representations.
