To determine if individuals with poor temporal processing abilities show genetic susceptibility to dyslexia.
To determine, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), if overlapping cortical networks for reading and temporal processing are compromised in individuals with dyslexia.
To evaluate the ability of children with amblyopia to process different kinds of stereoscopic information.
To use behavioural and functional magnetic imaging (fMRI) techniques to examine motion processing in the amblyopic and fellow eyes of children diagnosed with strabismic, anisometropic, or combined amblyopia.
