Dyslexics' Visual Attention Field

2017-09-19 01:38:22 | BioPortfolio


dyslexia is often considered like a phonological deficit but some researches show that a visual attention (V-A) deficit can occur in dyslexia. The investigator want to show that some dyslexics have a reduced V-A field in visual search when the investigator use separable feature (letter-like).

If the investigator demonstrate that, he will show that V-A deficit can be transpose to an ability acquired before reading, the visual search. Therefore, the V-A deficit can't be a consequence of reading problem but a cause of it for some dyslexics.

The investigator could imagine an earlier diagnosis for children at risk to develop dyslexia and make reeducation more specific for the deficit observed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Standardized tests designed to measure abilities, as in intelligence, aptitude, and achievement tests, or to evaluate personality traits.

Tests of chemical substances and physical agents for mutagenic potential. They include microbial, insect, mammalian cell, and whole animal tests.

An array of tests used to determine the toxicity of a substance to living systems. These include tests on clinical drugs, foods, and environmental pollutants.

Tests involving inhalation of allergens (nebulized or in dust form), nebulized pharmacologically active solutions (e.g., histamine, methacholine), or control solutions, followed by assessment of respiratory function. These tests are used in the diagnosis of asthma.

Diagnostic procedures, such as laboratory tests and x-rays, routinely performed on all individuals or specified categories of individuals in a specified situation, e.g., patients being admitted to the hospital. These include routine tests administered to neonates.
