Study redefines 'photographic memory' For the study, she and a group of psychology students looked at two groups of visitors to Fairfield U.'s Bellarmine Museum. For one thing, Henkel said, not everyone looks at the oodles and oodles of photos they take during a vacation, a museum visit or a child's school play. The study quickly caught the eye of media outlets across the globe, including talk show hostess Chelsea Handler, who mentioned it on her E! talk show, "Chelsea Lately."

Frontiers | Developmental dyslexia: dysfunction of a left hemisphere reading network | Frontiers in Human Neuroscience

This mini-review summarizes and integrates findings from recent meta-analyses and original neuroimaging studies on functional brain abnormalities in dyslexic readers. Surprisingly, there is little empirical support for the standard neuroanatomical model of developmental dyslexia, which localizes the primary phonological decoding deficit in left temporo-parietal regions. Rather, recent evidence points to a dysfunction of a left hemisphere reading network, which includes occipito-temporal, inferior frontal, and inferior parietal regions.
