Atypical Hemispheric Re-Organization of the Reading Network in High-Functioning Adults with Dyslexia

Participants read words while their neural activity was recorded in an fMRI scanner. The activity in the regions of interest (ROI) highlighted in A, was correlated with word-feature matrices defined by the degree of semantic similarity (SemModel) or orthographic similarity (OrthModel), shown in B. Representational similarity analysis (RSA) revealed atypical hemispheric organization of the reading network in high-functioning adults with dyslexia.
