Author(s): I-Fan SU | Sam-Po LAW
This lemma discusses the neural correlates of Chinese character recognition and phonological access based on neuroimaging techniques. For studies linking these issues with acquired dyslexia and dysgraphia, Acquired Dyslexia and Dysgraphia. While traditional lesion studies of acquired dyslexia and dysgraphia have the potential of informing us about neural substrates underlying orthographic processing and phonological access, they are severely limited in their capacity for generalization and specification of lesion-behavior rel…
