Biological Constraints on Literacy Acquisition.
Cossu, Giuseppe
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v11 n3 p213-37 Jun 1999
Investigates some of the biological constraints that shape the process of literacy acquisition. Explores the possibility of isolating processing components of reading which correspond to computational units of equivalent size in the neural architecture. Suggests that the process of literacy acquisition is largely constrained by a specific biological architecture which mimics the functional properties of a modular system. (SC)
