Converging Methods for Understanding Reading and Dyslexia, Paperback Book

Converging Methods for Understanding Reading and Dyslexia Paperback

Edited by Raymond M. Klein, Patricia A. McMullen

Part of the Language, Speech and Communication series



In the information age, reading is one of the most important cognitive skills an individual acquires.

A scientific understanding of this skill is important to help optimize its acquisition and performance.

This book offers an interdisciplinary look at the acquisition, loss, and remediation of normal reading processes.

Its two main goals are to illustrate, through state-of-the-art examples, various approaches used by scientists to understand the complex skill of reading and its breakdown, and to stimulate innovative research strategies that combine these methods.

The book is divided into five sections: normal adult reading and its development, developmental dyslexia, varieties of brain- damaged reading, neuroimaging, and computational modeling.Contributors : Marlene Behrmann, Derek Besner, Lori Buchanan, Thomas H.
