Check Out This Video about Dyslexia by SciShow!

SciShow Psych, one of our favorite YouTube channels, just published a terrific video about dyslexia that I wanted to share with you! It summarizes what dyslexia is and gives a great overview of recent controversial research about the biological causes of dyslexia. Check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Here are links to some of the research referenced in the video:

Left-right asymmetry of the Maxwell spot centroids in adults without and with dyslexia

The unique role of the visual word form area in reading

No we have not found the cause of dyslexia yet!
