Two studies were conducted to investigate visual attention deficits in dyslexia. In Experiment 1, adults with dyslexia and age- and IQ-matched controls completed a simple cueing task; participants responded to briefly presented (20 ms) eccentric targets (3 degrees , 6 degrees , or 9 degrees ) with a key press. In Experiment 2, the same participants completed a saccade version of the task, and saccade amplitude, accuracy, and latency were measured. The results revealed comparable performance… CONTINUE READING
