- Evidence from ERP and Eye Movements as Markers of Language Dysfunction in Dyslexiaby Aikaterini Premeti on January 21, 2022
Developmental dyslexia is a complex reading disorder involving genetic and environmental factors. After more than a century of research, its etiology remains debated. Two hypotheses are often put forward by scholars to account for the causes of dyslexia. The most common one, the linguistic hypothesis, postulates that dyslexia is due to poor phonological awareness. The alternative hypothesis considers that dyslexia is caused by visual-attentional deficits and abnormal eye movement patterns. This...
- Differentiating phonological delay from phonological disorder: Executive function performance in preschoolersby Rebecca Waring on January 21, 2022
CONCLUSIONS & IMPLICATIONS: Children with phonological disorders might benefit from intervention programmes that incorporate training in cognitive flexibility.
- Implicit learning in children with Childhood Apraxia of Speechby Clara Bombonato on January 14, 2022
CONCLUSION AND IMPLICATIONS: Our results underline an implicit learning deficit in children with Childhood Apraxia of Speech, supporting the concept of a disorder not only confined to the speech domain, but also involving non-linguistic skills, in a composite and complex picture.
- Electrophysiological Measures of Tactile and Auditory Processing in Children With Autism Spectrum Disorderby Girija Kadlaskar on January 10, 2022
Behavioral differences in responding to tactile and auditory stimuli are widely reported in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, the neural mechanisms underlying distinct tactile and auditory reactivity patterns in ASD remain unclear with theories implicating differences in both perceptual and attentional processes. The current study sought to investigate (1) the neural indices of early perceptual and later attentional factors underlying tactile and auditory processing in...
