Neuroscience research into dyslexia leads to 'brainprints'

Sarah Laszlo prepares a subject to measure brain activity using electroencephalography (EEG). A wonderful thing about basic research is its tendency to produce advances researchers hadn't anticipated. Cognitive neuroscientist Sarah Laszlo, for instance, found her early childhood learning studies took an unexpected jump into the worlds of security and identity verification.
Laszlo's research at Binghamton University, State University of New York, uses electroencephalography (EEG) to measure children's brain activity as they learn to read.
