In a series of training studies, English speaking adults learn to read new words written in unfamiliar alphabets. Neural activity is measured using fMRI as people read the new words at both early and late stages of learning. We are investigating how neural activity and reading performance are influenced by the nature of the script (print-to-sound transparency) and the teaching method (a focus on learning sound vs. meaning).
