Diagnosing the Neural Circuitry of Reading

Diagnosing the Neural Circuitry of Reading
Rosemary K. Le, Brian A. Wandell

We summarize the current state of knowledge of the brain's reading circuits, and then we describe opportunities to use quantitative and reproducible methods for diagnosing these circuits. Neural circuit diagnostics—by which we mean identifying the locations and responses in an individual that differ significantly from measurements in good readers—can help parents and educators select the best remediation strategy. A sustained effort to develop and share diagnostic methods can support the societal goal of improving literacy.
