Inferential processes in reading comprehension by good and struggling readers: Cognitive and neurological foundations
01 / 2011 - 12 / 2014
An essential part of successful reading comprehension is the reader s construction of a coherent mental representation of the text. In such a representation the various elements in the text are related to each other and to relevant background knowledge. The aim of the project is to determine individual differences in reading processes between good and struggling readers and, among struggling readers, between subgroups. To do so, a combination of cognitive tasks and neuro-imaging data collections will be used. Interventions targeting each (sub)group will be developed and tested for their effectiveness, again using both behavioral and neuro-imaging data.
