Eden, Guinevere F. (2015). Brain Imaging Studies of Reading and Reading Disability. University of California Television (UCTV). Guinevere F. Eden, Georgetown University Medical Center, highlights the importance of distinguishing between cause and consequence of dyslexia. Reading is a cultural invention and has to be learned through explicit instructions, resulting in the utilization of a variety of brain areas that were not designed specifically to read. This presentation explores how brain imaging technology has been used to reveal brain areas that are involved in word processing in typical readers and how these differ in children and adults with reading disability (e.g. dyslexia).
