Morphofunctional Imaging and Developmental Dyslexia

Summary

Developmental dyslexia is a frequent learning disability. The aim of this study is to analyze cortical thickness and phonological treatment in right handed adults with developmental dyslexia. They are compared to control adults paired with age and laterality. To study phonological treatment, the researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with a rime judgement task and silent word generation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A cognitive disorder characterized by an impaired ability to comprehend written and printed words or phrases despite intact vision. This condition may be developmental or acquired. Developmental dyslexia is marked by reading achievement that falls substantially below that expected given the individual's chronological age, measured intelligence, and age-appropriate education. The disturbance in reading significantly interferes with academic achievement or with activities of daily living that require reading skills. (From DSM-IV)

Morphological findings useful in differentiation and classification of results in CYTODIAGNOSIS and related techniques.

Genes that cause the epigenotype (i.e., the interrelated developmental pathways through which the adult organism is realized) to switch to an alternate cell lineage-related pathway. Switch complexes control the expression of normal functional development as well as oncogenic transformation.

Any of the processes by which nuclear, cytoplasmic, or intercellular factors influence the differential control of gene action during the developmental stages of an organism.

The developmental entity of a fertilized chicken egg (ZYGOTE). The developmental process begins about 24 h before the egg is laid at the BLASTODISC, a small whitish spot on the surface of the EGG YOLK. After 21 days of incubation, the embryo is fully developed before hatching.
