Abstract

The use of neuroimaging has provided a basis for suggesting the brain areas active during reading of words and sentences. When combined with high density electrical recording from the scalp, it is possible to obtain information on the time course of activation of these brain areas and compare them with the temporal structure of reading from studies of eye movements. The paper summarizes results in these areas and suggests how acquisition and practice of the skill might alter the circuitry involved.
