A Division of Psychiatry, University of Nottingham, UKb Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of South Carolina, USAc School of Psychology, University of Nottingham, UK Received 22 December 2008, Revised 19 July 2009, Accepted 5 August 2009, Available online 12 August 2009 Choose an option to locate/access this article: Check if you have access through your login credentials or your institution Check access doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2009.08.007 Get rights and content Abstract Temporal and spatial attentional deficits in dyslexia were investigated using a lateralized visual temporal order judgment (TOJ) paradigm that allowed both sensitivity to temporal order and spatial attentional bias to be measured.
</div></div> Highlights Associations of infant ERPs to speech and reading speed in 14 years were studied. ERPs of infants at-risk for dyslexia predicted 44% of reading speed at 14 years. The prediction was mediated via preschool-age rapid naming (RAN). Abstract Keywords Children Dyslexia Infants Reading. Number reading in pure alexia—A review. Open Access Abstract It is commonly assumed that number reading can be intact in patients with pure alexia, and that this dissociation between letter/word recognition and number reading strongly constrains theories of visual word processing.
A truly selective deficit in letter/word processing would strongly support the hypothesis that there is a specialized system or area dedicated to the processing of written words. To date, however, there has not been a systematic review of studies investigating number reading in pure alexia and so the status of this assumed dissociation is unclear. We review the literature on pure alexia from 1892 to 2010, and find no well-documented classical dissociation between intact number reading and impaired letter identification in a patient with pure alexia. Highlights Keywords Pure alexia; Alexia without agraphia; Letter-by-letter reading; Visual recognition; Number reading; Dissociation 1.
Another challenge concerns what constitutes a dissociation. Phonological dyslexia and phonological impairment: An exception to the rule? Reduced hemispheric asymmetry of the auditory N260m in dyslexia.
