Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v3 n3-4 p379-93 Dec 1991
Investigates the proposed left hemisphere dysfunction in dyslexia by reviewing four studies using regional cerebral blood flow (RCBF) and combined auditory evoked responses with positron emission tomography. Emphasizes methodological issues. Finds that dyslexics showed a positive correlation between Heschl's gyrus activation and phonemic processing accuracy. (RS)
