different languages, different dyslexias

Readers of Chinese use different parts of the brain from readers of English, write Brian Butterworth and Joey Tang

This guardian article is interesting in it’s own right – different phonological and visuo-spatial requirements of reading english vs reading chinese, ‘Chinese dyslexia may be caused by a different genetic anomaly than English dyslexia’, etc – and also because it is an example of two scientists turning their research into popular news form themselves – bravo them and bravo the guardian for letting them do it.

One reply on “different languages, different dyslexias”

Hmm. Fascinating article, but I really can’t tell which is more interesting: the results, or the way that the researchers wrote and published their story in the Guardian.

Do you have more info on the studies that were done?
