Dysfluent reading in disorganized brains

Posted Dec 04 2007 12:00am

Bernard Chang and colleagues, who study a rare genetic disorder called periventricular nodular heterotopia (PNH), have found evidence that points to a specific relationship between certain brain structures and dysfluent reading. People with PNH have difficulty reading fluently and their genetic disorder causes a known aberration in neural structure. Their fluency in reading is correlated with the degree of disorganization in their brains.
