Reading Training for Children with Dyslexia

The purpose of this project is to determine the effect of reading training on the neural circuits supporting executive functions in children with dyslexia.

Results Summary: After 4 weeks of reading training, the fMRI BOLD signal have shifted from the left to the right hemisphere in children with dyslexia.
