Pioneering Minds Episode 6: Anne Castles and Cognitive Disorders

In this podcast, Ben Mckelvey talks to Distinguished Professor Anne Castles from Macquarie's Department of Cognitive Science and a leading dyslexia researcher. They discuss how the human brain makes sense of the squiggly lines we call writing, how far the bounds of neuroplasticity really go, and how brain damage Ben suffered as a result of a stroke may be be similar to the effects of dyslexia on children.
