Reading impairment, known as alexia, frequently co-occurs with damage to the language areas of the brain in aphasia. Text-based reading treatments have been shown to improve reading fluency, but the mechanisms behind such improvement remain unclear. This study investigates the efficacy of...
Neurophysiological mechanisms of reading in alexia: Development of stimuli to examine semantic integration using the N400 responseDownload
In order for speech-language pathologists to improve therapy for acquired reading impairments, it is necessary to gain a better understanding of how sentences are processed during reading. Neural mechanisms underlying reading processes can be examined by using event-related potentials (ERPs)....
