LONDON Dyslexia, a common reading and learning disorder, could be influenced by culture, researchers said yesterday.
They discovered that a different area of the brain is affected in dyslexic Chinese children who read the character-based language.
"The finding provides an insight . . . into dyslexia by suggesting that the biological abnormality of impaired reading is dependent on culture," said Li Hai Tan, of the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Reuters
