Isolating the M(y)-cell response in dyslexia using the spatial frequency doubling illusion

Pammer, Kristen; Wheatley, Christopher Paul


The contribution of M(y)-cell activity within a framework of a magnocellular-deficit theory of dyslexia is currently unknown. Twenty-one dyslexic readers and 19 control readers were compared on their threshold detection for the frequency doubling illusion - an index of M(y)-cell activity, coherent motion, and a visual acuity task. The dyslexic group performed more poorly on detection of the frequency doubling illusion and coherent motion compared to the control group, but both groups performed...[Show more]
