This is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging scan of my brother's brain. He is facing left, and you can see his cortex and sub-cortical regions. The areas we are interested in are at the 'back' of his brain, visual regions where letter recognition occurs and eye movements are controlled. These are processes crucial in reading, and we scanned him doing a variety of reading tasks to investigate the activation in these regions. This is part of a larger study investigating the rehabillitation of reading after strokes.
Please note: this is a very large brain.
