Auditory Neuropathy / Auditory Dyssynchrony in children with Cochlear Implants - ScienceDirect. The approach for habilitating and rehabilitating patients with auditory neuropathy/auditory dys-synchrony (AN/AD) has raised diverging questions and opinions, because these individuals continue to be placed in the special cases group for cochlear implants.
The term auditory neuropathy has been used generically to name discrepancies between the cochlear and neural functions of the auditory system. AN/AD has been described in the literature as a change in neural synchronism whereby the function of outer hair cells is preserved while afferent neural transmission is compromised. However, to this date the exact injury site has not been demonstrated by current methods in clinical practice. AN/AD can significantly affect speech understanding and production. Thus, adequate habilitation and rehabilitation is needed especially in children, who go through critical hearing and language development periods.

Dyslexic children did not show the overestimation of the left visual field (pseudoneglect) characteristic of normal adult vision. These results suggest that children with developmental dyslexia present selective deficits in visual attention, probably involving neural structures located in the right posterior parietal cortex.

Cultural Confusions Show that Facial Expressions Are Not Universal: Current Biology. Figure 1 Fixation Distributions (A) Fixation distributions for each observer group collapsed across race of face and seven expression categories (see Figure S2 for fixation distributions for each condition separately).
Color-coded distributions represent the density of fixations across face regions, with red showing the most densely fixated regions. Note that for East Asian (EA) observers, fixations are biased toward the upper part of the face as compared to Western Caucasian (WC) observers, where fixations are more evenly distributed across the face, including the mouth. (B) Fixation distributions for “surprise,” “fear,” “disgust,” and “anger.” Figure 2 Fixation Sequences for “Surprise,” “Fear,” “Anger,” and “Disgust” Developmental dyslexia is characterized by the co-existence of visuospatial and phonological disorders in Chinese children. Open Archive Summary Developmental dyslexia is a neurological condition that is characterized by severe impairment in reading skill acquisition in people with adequate intelligence and typical schooling 1, 2 and 3.
For English readers, reading impairment is critically associated with a phonological processing disorder 3, 4 and 5, which may co-occur with an orthographic (visual word form) processing deficit , but not with a general visual processing dysfunction in most dyslexics . The pathophysiology of dyslexia varies across languages : for instance, unlike English, written Chinese maps visually intricate graphic forms (characters) onto meanings; pronunciation of Chinese characters must be rote memorized.

Neural changes underlying the development of episodic memory during middle childhood.
Focusing on work from our own lab, we review studies from the domains of episodic and working memory informed by this model, and discuss their potential implications for educational settings. The episodic memory studies uncover the latent potential of the associative component in childhood by documenting children's ability to greatly improve their memory performance following mnemonic instruction and training.

Why is the processing of global motion impaired in adults with developmental dyslexia?
Open Access Highlights Readers with dyslexia do not have a selective deficit of global motion perception. The visual impairment in dyslexia is a difficulty processing temporal information. Global motion and form thresholds are significantly positively correlated. Gender and non-verbal IQ predict performance on random-dot global motion tasks.
