UC San Francisco researchers have used brain scans to predict how young children learn to read, giving clinicians a possible tool to spot children with dyslexia and other reading difficulties before they experience reading challenges.
The research is in Psychological Science. (full access paywall)

anybody read this?
i didn’t pick it to read right nownah i totes had a change mind so yeah i am reading it, but some input would be kind of nice because, well, it seems a tad odd
the way it’s set up
it was mentioned quite a few times in my internet perusing, and a lot of people were talking about how long/hard (i’ve been reading for 7 months…) of a read it is so of course i had to buy it
and i mean, it’s a big book, gotta be at least 500 pages (i didn’t check) but
let me show you
any input you can give me on what i’m getting myself into here would be cool
This is the best book i have ever read, it took months to read it and i couldnt even finish it the second time round, i seriously recomend it though
This book is the bomb. It is awesome. It is terrifying. I haven’t yet had the leisure to just read the bloody thing start to finish, but it’s one of those books that you’re reading all haha this isn’t scary and then you look up and the walls are closing in around you and your hallway may or may not be there it might be stretching it might be shrinking it might be nice to close that door now. I went to the 7-11 to get a snack in the middle of reading this book. All the shelves had been rearranged. Nothing was where I left it. It scared the shit out of me, I had to take some very deep breaths here. And you would know why if you read this book, which could be catalogued as ‘architectural horror’.
