Graphic: MRI image of two heads comparing control group and dyslexic group
Caption: Images of the brain reveal that normally reading adults show activity in visual cortex during the perception of visual motion. Adults with dyslexia lack this activity, demonstrating that the neurobiological basis of disordered reading can be elicited in tasks that do not involve reading. Control group is on left and dyslexic group on right.
