Pioneering Minds podcast: Anne Castles on cognitive disorders

In our fifth installment of our Pioneering Minds podcast series, meet leading dyslexia researcher Distinguished Professor Anne Castles from the Department of Cognitive Science.

Anne discusses how the human brain makes sense of the squiggly lines we call writing, how far the bounds of neuroplasticity really go, and how the brain damage interviewer Ben Mckelvey suffered as a result of a stroke may be similar to the effects of dyslexia on children.
