Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopic Imaging of the Brain: Application of fMRI and fMRS to Reading Disabilities and Education.
Richards, Todd L.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v24 n3 p189-203 Sum 2001
This tutorial/review covers functional brain-imaging methods and results used to study language and reading disabilities. Although the emphasis is on magnetic resonance imaging and functional magnetic resonance spectroscopy, other imaging techniques are also discussed including positron emission tomography, electroencephalography, magnetoencepholography, and magnetic resonance diffusion imaging. Application to dyslexia is explained. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
