Hemispheric processing characteristics for lexical decisions in adults with reading disorders

Perceptual and Motor Skills, 92(1), 273–287.

By: M. Walker*, H. Spires n & M. Rastatter*

Contributors: M. Walker*, H. Spires n & M. Rastatter*

MeSH headings : Adolescent; Adult; Brain / physiopathology; Cognition / physiology; Decision Making; Dyslexia / physiopathology; Fixation, Ocular / physiology; Functional Laterality / physiology; Humans; Male; Reaction Time; Visual Fields / physiology; Visual Perception / physiology
TL;DR: A deficit in interhemispheric lexical transfer occurs for reading-disordered samples and use of a callosal relay model wherein the left hemisphere is allocated responsibility for performing central operations underlying lexical decisions by adults with reading disorders is suggested.
