Out of the lab and into the world of games : portable dorsal stream tasks with game - like features can predict reading ability

Tulloch, Kayla Marie

Description

There is now a substantial body of evidence to suggest that visuo - spatial attention, mediated by the dorsal stream, is implicated in reading performance. A deficit in the dorsal stream has been linked with difficulty in reading accuracy, fluency or both types of reading skill. However, research in this area has thus far been undertaken in traditional, tightly controlled lab based settings.
