Sure. Research has shown that dyslexia suffers' brain areas that should be active when a person reads don't work properly. The brain with dyslexia has the following characteristics:
  • Disruptions in the rear reading system in the left hemispheere, critical for reading fluently
  • Greater activation in the lower frontal area
  • Less activity in the Left Parietal-temporal lobe required for phonological processing
  • Less activity in the Left Occipital-temporal lobe that affects the understanding of letters into sounds, auditory processing and interpretation of sounds
  • Less gray matter to help with transfer of information of language
