Neural Mechanisms of Successful Intervention in Children With Dyslexia

2020-03-29 04:04:32 | BioPortfolio


Dyslexia, an impairment in accurate or fluent word recognition, is the most common learning disability affecting roughly ten percent of children. This proposal capitalizes on cutting edge neuroimaging methods, in combination with reading education programs, to generate a new understanding of how successful reading education shapes the development of the brain circuits that support skilled reading. A deeper understanding of the mechanisms of successful remediation of dyslexia, and individual differences in learning, will pave the way for personalized approaches to dyslexia treatment.

Using fMRI to Evaluate Instructional Programs for Children With Developmental Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a common reading disorder. Specialized instructional programs can improve reading ability in children with dyslexia. This study will use functional magnetic resonance imaging...

Developmental Dyslexia and Functional Maturation of Auditory Cortex

Developmental dyslexia is a frequent learning disability. The aim of this study is to compare auditory evoked cortical responses to syllables and tones in developmental dyslexia and contro...

Morphofunctional Imaging and Developmental Dyslexia

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 dyslex...

Developmental Dyslexia and Remediation Methods

At least, three theoretical frameworks are currently involved in therapeutic research in developmental dyslexia. Each theoretical framework relies on the type of underlying cognitive proce...

Functional MRI Study in Children With a Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and/or Developmental Dyslexia (DD)

All the studies underlined the high frequency of co-morbid associations in specific learning disorders. Understanding the reasons for these associations could enable us to determine the ce...

Response frequencies in the conjoint recognition memory task as predictors of developmental dyslexia diagnosis: A decision-trees approach.

The presented study applies the methods of data mining and prediction models to the subject of memory functioning in developmental dyslexia. This article sets forth the results of an analysis of the d...

Spoken Word Learning Differences Among Children With Dyslexia, Concomitant Dyslexia and Developmental Language Disorder, and Typical Development.

Purpose The purpose of our study was to test the hypotheses (a) that children with dyslexia have spoken word learning deficits primarily related to phonology and (b) that children with dyslexia and co...

Subcortical auditory neural synchronization is deficient in pre-reading children who develop dyslexia.

Auditory processing of temporal information in speech is sustained by synchronized firing of neurons along the entire auditory pathway. In school-aged children and adults with dyslexia, neural synchro...

Language and Pragmatics Across Neurodevelopmental Disorders: An Investigation Using the Italian Version of CCC-2.

Impairments in structural language and pragmatics are well recognized in different neurodevelopmental disorders, yet in clinical work the discrimination of children with various language difficulties ...

Predicting Dyslexia in Children With Developmental Language Disorder.

Purpose In this study, we examine how well kindergarten letter identification and phonological awareness predict 2nd grade word reading and dyslexia in children with developmental language disorder (D...

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)

A phylum of the most familiar marine invertebrates. Its class Stelleroidea contains two subclasses, the Asteroidea (the STARFISH or sea stars) and the Ophiuroidea (the brittle stars, also called basket stars and serpent stars). There are 1500 described species of STARFISH found throughout the world. The second class, Echinoidea, contains about 950 species of SEA URCHINS, heart urchins, and sand dollars. A third class, Holothuroidea, comprises about 900 echinoderms known as SEA CUCUMBERS. Echinoderms are used extensively in biological research. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, pp773-826)

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.

Aggregates of matter in outer space, such as stars, planets, comets, etc. and the properties and processes they undergo.

Large aggregates of CELESTIAL STARS; COSMIC DUST; and gas. (From McGraw Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
