The contribution of temporal dynamics of visual processing to developmental dyslexia: a steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) study

Fang Wang has been developing novel steady-state EEG techniques to reveal the underlying neural dynamics involved in the acquisition of reading skills in children. She will use the Koret award to extend her findings in typically developing children to children with dyslexia, illustrating how cortical challenges in the temporal dynamics of visual processing can contribute to dyslexia. Wang hopes that this research will provide a basis for developing earlier brain-based assessments that can be implemented in a school environment to improve reading outcomes for children.
