Our approach to the emerging global reality…


Considering the current local/global pace of change and recognizing that there are increasingly fewer secure jobs, businesses, and/or markets, we believe that the best way to prepare one and all for the future is to enhance and accelerate the way we think, learn, understand and express what we know and what we want to say so that we are effectively prepared for the future, regardless of its permutations.

  • The Utility of Neuroimaging Studies for Informing Educational Practice and Policy in Reading Disorders    (Sun 01 of Mar., 2015)
    Educational neuroscience is an emerging scientific field that brings together researchers from neuroscience, psychology, and education to explore the neurocognitive processes underlying educational practice and theory. In this brief article, we take reading disorder (RD, also known as developmental dyslexia) as an example, and explore trends in neuroimaging research, which may have future implications for educational practice and policy. Specifically, we present two examples that have been central to research efforts in our laboratory: (a) utilizing multimodal neuroimaging to optimize criteria to diagnose RD, and (b) identifying neuroimaging markers that predict future academic outcomes. Such research is faced with important challenges, and rigorous validation is necessary before any claim...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK.

  • Dyslexic children lack word selectivity gradients in occipito-temporal and inferior frontal cortex    (Thu 26 of Feb., 2015)
    We report absence of an IFC gradient and connectivity between the lateral aspect of the IFC and the anterior occipito-temporal cortex in the dyslexic children. Together, our results provide insights into the source of the anomalies reported in previous studies of dyslexia and add to the growing evidence of an orthographic role of IFC in reading.

  • Dyslexia needn’t hold doctors back    (Thu 26 of Feb., 2015)
    (Reuters Health) - - Failing kindergarten was the first of many school struggles for Blake Charlton. Diagnosed with dyslexia, he was relegated to remedial classes that he barely passed. Now, at 35, reading still poses a challenge. He’s a self-described “crummy” speller who manages written communications by relying on abbreviations. People who recall his academic difficulties are often surprised at the abbreviation that now follows his name: M.D. (Source: Reuters: Health)
  • Impaired oculo-motor behaviour affects both reading and scene perception in neglect patients    (Wed 25 of Feb., 2015)
    Publication date: April 2015 Source:Neuropsychologia, Volume 70 Author(s): Silvia Primativo , Lisa S. Arduino , Roberta Daini , Maria De Luca , Carlo Toneatto , Marialuisa Martelli Unilateral spatial neglect (USN) is a common neuropsychological disorder following a right-sided brain lesion. Although USN is mostly characterized by symptoms involving the left hemispace, other symptoms are not left lateralized. Recently, it was shown that patients with neglect dyslexia, a reading disturbance that affects about 40% of USN patients, manifest a non-lateralized impairment of eye movement behaviour in association with their reading deficit when they read aloud and perform non-verbal saccadic tasks (Primativo et al., 2013). In the present paper, we aimed to demonstrate that the eye movement impai...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK. Find the best Christmas presents too.
