Brain Research in Language addresses important neurological issues involved in reading. The reading process is a highly composite cognitive task, which relies on brain systems that were originally devoted to other functions. The majority of studies in this area have used behavioral methodologies. This book presents data obtained from studies employing behavioral, electrophysiological and imaging methodologies focusing on the regular reading process and the dyslexic population.
Provides evidence of brain activity in terms of accurate time resolution
Focuses on dyslexic as well as regular readers
Provides evidence from numerous languages
Provides a detailed review of existing methods in EEG research in written language
Demonstrates the difference between these methods and other imaging techniques such as fMRI and MAG
