  1. Fig. 1

    Brain activation differences in dyslexia and its treatment [from (36)]. Functional magnetic resonance imaging activations shown on the left hemisphere for phonological processing in typically developing readers (left), age-matched dyslexic readers (middle), and the difference before and after remediation in the same dyslexic readers (right). Red circles identify the frontal region, and blue circles identify the temporo-parietal region of the brain. Both regions are hypoactivated in dyslexia and become more activated after remediation.

  2. Fig. 2

    Reading-related group differences in white matter as measured by DTI [from (48)]. Top row (A to E) shows reading-related differences in five independent studies; same locations of group differences are viewed sagitally (F) and axially (G). Colors correspond to estimated directions of white-matter pathways: left-right, red; anterior-posterior, green; inferior-superior, blue.
