Washington: Scientists have found a mechanism using devices to "fix" the problem of dyslexia, a constellation of impairments unrelated to intelligence, hearing or vision that make reading a struggle. While most children read smoothly, as many as one in 10 is estimated to suffer from dyslexia. Now, researchers from Northwestern University report they have found a biological mechanism that appears to play an important role in the reading process, the Science Daily reported. "We discovered a systematic relationship between reading ability and the consistency with which the brain encodes sounds," Nina Kraus, Hugh Knowles Professor of Neurobiology, Physiology and Communication was quoted as saying. Recording the automatic brain wave responses of 100 school-aged children to speech sounds, researchers found that the very best readers encoded the sound most consistently while the poorest readers encoded it with inconsistency, which could be "fixed" through training.
