LD children and spelling treatment effect on fMRIs

Thanks to Andrew Livanis (School Psychology blog) for the folllowing.

Brain Images Show LD Children Respond To Spelling Treatment

  • "One of the interesting things about reading disorders is that children with a positive diagnosis tend to show different patterns of brain activity that non-identified children. This is a brief summary of reserach (too brief in my opinion - I would have liked to have seen more of it) in which a treatment showed positive results as shown through pre- and post- fMRI patterns. Specifically, the LD groups post fMRI patterns more closely resembled the non-LD children's fMRI patterns."

Excellent post! The citation is actually not Neurolinguistics but the Journal of Neurolinguistics. The article can be accessed for the rest of this month on the website http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=IssueURL&_tockey=%23TOC%235992%232006%23999809998%23613065%23FLA%23&_auth=y&view=c&_acct=C000050221&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=10&md5=10d44eb9131606174552cf944b051d78
