Abstract

We present electroencephalogram and event related potentials of dyslexics, which support evidence of abnormality in the rapid visual processing of the magnocellular pathway and then show how this impairment can be ameliorated with a combination of qEEG guided neurofeedback and conventional dyslexia therapies. Previous research shows deficits in one of two sensory processing systems, the magnocellular ‘where pathway’ which processes rapid stimuli such as motion so affects reading continuously when the eyes track text across a page. The parvocellular ‘what pathway’ deals with fine spatial, static sensory information affecting accurate letter identification.
