Galaburda, Albert M.
Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v8 n1 p43-50 Win 1997
This paper summarizes research currently being conducted on the biologic underpinnings of learning disorders, particularly dyslexia. The research findings discussed are derived from studying neuroanatomic, neurophysiologic, neurogenetic, neuroimaging, and behavioral characteristics in animal models that exhibit developmental brain anomalies and learning disorders comparable to humans. Further research on subcortical abnormalities is also described. (Author/CR)
