This chapter provides an overview of the reading networks and their implications for our understanding of developmental dyslexia. In particular, it focuses on the sublexical lettersound conversion and the lexical direct visual-semantic routes for reading that rely greatly on accurate visual input. It proposes that the visual magnocellular system is crucial for this processing.
