This chapter confronts a simple anatomical and functional scheme for the architecture of the reading system, with multimodal data from patients with various deficits affecting the visual stages of word processing. It first outlines the proposed architecture for reading, then sketches an overview of peripheral dyslexias, and eventually considers how the model may account for behavioral, anatomical, and functional observations in patients with varieties of alexia.

Keywords: reading; peripheral dyslexias; alexia
