Click here for link to story.

This article is about research being done on students with dyslexia who are learning in very different languages.  The researchers are comparing the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brains of students learning either English or Chinese.  The scientists are then comparing the two images to see which areas of the brain are experiencing unusual amounts of stimulation.  The article says that the scientist's findings are useful because it tells therapists to used different methods when helping dyslexic children who are from different cultures.  I would like to know if the current therapies used to help students who are learning the more visual languages (i.e. Chinese) would help the English learning students who have sensory-motor difficulties (which in our culture would not be considered dyslexia).  I also wonder if a student with dyslexia in English would have an easier time learning Chinese (assuming that they had the same level of exposure to the language that a native-Chinese speaker would have) & vice versa.  Do you have ideas about something related to the topic of this article?  If so, post a comment.  [extra credit is not being given for this.
