Background color influences on processing visual hierarchical patterns in dyslexics, poor readers and normal readers
Keywords:Dyslexia, background color, visual processing, hierarchical patterns, intelligence levels and magnoceilular system
The aim of this work was to examine whether dyslexia is associated to a deficit in the processing of global information of hierarchical patterns which is mediated by the magnocelular system. Moreover, effects of color background on global information processing are tested in normal readers, poor readers and dyslexics. The results showed that red background color impaired global processing in ail three groups (normal readers, poor readers and dyslexics). These results are not congruent with the theory that proposes one deficit in the magnoceilular processing system in disabled readers.
