Cognitive approaches to reading
In recent years cognitive psychology has made a substantial contribution to our understanding of the reading process. This book aims to provide a review of the key areas within reading which have benefited from such an approach. The book begins with basic aspects of reading, covering the cultural and biological context of reading, word recognition processes and reading in relation to the following: working memory, syntactic analysis, the comprehension of text, the cerebral hemispheres, and eye movements. More applied aspects of reading follow: the development of reading in children, the development of phonemic awareness, reading retardation and its causes, and the alexias. Contributions include essays from some of the best-known authors in this field.
