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.

  • Morphological differences in the lateral geniculate nucleus associated with dyslexia    (Fri 20 of Mar., 2015)
    Publication date: Available online 20 March 2015 Source:NeuroImage: Clinical Author(s): Mónica Giraldo-Chica , John P. Hegarty II , Keith A. Schneider Developmental dyslexia is a common learning disability characterized by normal intelligence but difficulty in skills associated with reading, writing and spelling. One of the most prominent, albeit controversial, theories of dyslexia is the magnocellular theory, which suggests that malfunction of the magnocellular system in the brain is responsible for the behavioral deficits. We sought to test the basis of this theory by directly measuring the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), the only location in the brain where the magnocellular and parvocellular streams are spatially disjoint. Using high-resolution proton-density weighted MRI scans, w...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Directory of the best January Sales in the UK. Find the best Christmas presents too.
  • [Perspectives] Beryl Benacerraf: new AIUM President gets the picture    (Fri 20 of Mar., 2015)
    When your father is a Nobel laureate (immunologist Baruj Benacerraf) and your mother's uncle is another (biologist Jacques Monod), it's hardly surprising that your career thoughts should turn to the life sciences and medicine. But when it emerges that your childhood difficulty in reading is persisting into adult life, you might begin to doubt the feasibility of your ambitions. “I had a significant dyslexia problem”, says Beryl Benacerraf, Professor of Obstetrics, Gynaecology, and Reproductive Biology at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA, USA, and also Professor of Radiology there.

  • Visual attention deficits in developmental dyslexia cannot be ascribed solely to poor reading experience    (Thu 19 of Mar., 2015)
