U.S. researchers studied MRI scans of 40 kindergartners and found an association between poor pre-reading ability and the size of the structure linking two areas of the brain responsible for language processing. The findings, which appear in the Journal of Neuroscience, suggest that such scans could detect children with dyslexia before they start learning to read and enable them to get help sooner.
