The Educational Neuroscience of Reading
This free symposium will convene a multidisciplinary group of researchers, educators, and policymakers to discuss the neural bases of reading and its implications for teaching and learning. They will discuss the current research on:
- how written language is processed by the brain
- how different aspects of reading are reflected in neural responses
- how the neural circuitry of reading might differ for individuals with reading difficulties, and
- how the brain processes digital and print texts differently
