Words Recognized by Looks, Not Sounds --Doctors Lounge

Skilled readers do not have to sound out words every time they see them, a new study indicates.

Instead, once they know a word, they can access a "visual dictionary" in their brains to recognize it every time they see it, said researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center. They suggested these findings could provide new insight into certain reading disorders.

"One camp of neuroscientists believes that we access both the phonology and the visual perception of a word as we read them and that the area or areas of the brain that do one also do the other, but our study proves this isn't the case," lead investigator Laurie Glezer, a postdoctoral research fellow, said in a medical center news release.

Los buenos lectores tienen un ‘diccionario visual’ en el cerebro

El hallazgo de que existe un ‘diccionario visual’ en nuestro cerebro al que se acude al leer para poder realizar esta tarea con más velocidad ha aparecido en la reunión anual de la Society for Neuroscience de este año. Al leer, basta un rápido vistazo a una palabra para que nuestro cerebro sea capaz de codificarla fonética y visualmente eliminando la necesidad de que haya una realización sonora. Así, en el estudio, se asegura que una vez que se ha aprendido una palabra, ésta se coloca en este diccionario visual para permitir, en el futuro, reconocerla rápida y eficazmente con menor gasto de energía. Laurie Glezer, investigadora principal del estudio que trabaja en el Laboratorio para la Neurociencia Computacional Cognitiva de la GUMC, lo explica de este modo:.......

Institute for Local Government Produces Guides to Pension and Labor Terminology

Earlier this month, the language of the pension and labor debates became a bit clearer, as the Institute for Local Government published its Guides to Pension and Labor Terminology. The two resources seek to disambiguate the language that surrounds the ongoing conversation of pensions and labor.

Despite all the public uproar that continues to consume much of public discourse, most of the terminology remains foreign to the masses.
