Information from the Pediatric Neuroimaging Research Consortium at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital:

Tzipi Horowitz-Kraus, PhD. is conducting a brain imaging research project to understand the neural circuitry of the Error Detection Mechanism.  The EDM’s activation has been found to increase with reading training, and this increase was associated with improved reading accuracy and speed (fluency).

This is a study to establish the effect of a reading intervention program on reading and brain activation in children with and without reading difficulties.

Some participants will receive a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan as part of the research.  All participants will receive access to an internet based reading training program that can be accessed in the child’s own home.  This reading training program lasts 4 weeks.

Needed: Children 8-12 years old with (and without) reading difficulties.

Families will receive $40 per behavioral and imaging visit (2 visits overall) and $20 for the additional behavioral assessment for time and travel.
