Deepen your understanding of the precursors and early indicators of dyslexia with this groundbreaking research volume. 40+ international contributors present the very latest knowledge on the diverse genetic, neurobiological, and cognitive factors that may contribute to dyslexia.
Understanding the precursors and early indicators of dyslexia is key to early identification and effective intervention. Now theres a single research volume that brings together the very latest knowledge on the earliest stages of dyslexia and the diverse genetic, neurobiological, and cognitive factors that may contribute to it.
Based on findings first reported at the Dyslexia Foundations 12th Extraordinary Brain Symposium, this landmark volume collects cutting-edge dyslexia research from the worlds foremost experts on this complex disorder, as well as insights from experts newly interested in applying their innovative techniques to dyslexia research. 40+ international contributors from multiple disciplines present groundbreaking research on:
neurolinguistic and neurophysiological precursors of dyslexia
new techniques and technologies ranging from molecular genetics, to neuroimaging, to cognitive neuroscience
genetic influences on reading and reading disability
the magnocellular theory of dyslexia
anatomical risk factors for reading and language disorders
subcortical auditory function and how it contributes to variance in reading ability
cortical phenotypes associated with developmental dyslexia
the impact of atypical auditory processing in infancy on later language and reading skills
the interplay among environment, brain, and behaviour while children are developing reading skills
phonological processing difficulties and their effect on later literacy outcomes
the latest techniques in paediatric neuroimaging
Each of the books four sections has a helpful integrative introduction. And to help readers shape the course of future dyslexia studies, a concluding chapter distils the key themes discussed at the symposium and examines specific recommendations for further research on the genetics, neurobiology, and behaviour of dyslexia.
An important volume that will be cited and quoted in the literature for years to come, this book sheds new light on the precursors and early indicators of dyslexiaand will provide a strong foundation for tomorrows innovative interventions.
Rezension: "This is the book to read and keep on your shelf if you want to know what is happening in dyslexia research today." --Albert M. Galaburda, M.D.
