Neural Correlates of the Cognitive Processes Underlying Reading: Evidence from Magnetic Resonance Perfusion Imaging

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews data from a single methodology-acute functional lesion-deficit correlation-that has been used to evaluate specific hypotheses regarding the neural basis of reading. The goal of this methodology is to determine those areas of the brain responsible for impairments of specific components of the reading process, before reorganization or recovery.
