Preview

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.

Keywords: neural basis; acute functional lesion-deficit correlation; neuroimaging; brain regions
