Selective disorders of reading?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Over the past few decades, refined cognitive architectures with highly specific components have been proposed to explain apparently selective disorders of reading, resulting from brain disease or injury, in previously literate adults. Recent analysis of the more general linguistic and cognitive abilities supported by neural systems damaged in the various forms of alexia favours a rather different view of reading and the kinds of models sufficient to account for its acquisition, skilled performance and disruption.
