European Researchers Team Up to Probe Genetic, Environmental Links in Dyslexia

JAMA. 2006;296(22):2664. doi:10.1001/jama.296.22.2664

Researchers from 9 European countries have teamed up to determine the genetic, neuroscientific, and behavioral factors implicated in dyslexia. Children recruited to participate in the different genetic, epidemiologic, and neuroimaging studies will come from many countries, “which should allow researchers to take account of the specific aspects of each language as well as the general causes of dyslexia,” said Franck Ramus, PhD, the leader of the French group at the Laboratory of Cognitive Sciences and Psycholinguistics in Paris.
