Visual motion activates V5 in dyslexics.

A recent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study concluded that the motion-specific visual area V5 is not activated in dyslexic subjects. We report here opposing evidence based on whole-scalp neuromagnetic recordings. Apparent-motion stimuli elicited similar activation of V5 in both dyslexic and control subjects, with a trend for longer latencies… CONTINUE READING
