This chapter focuses on the use of MEG in studying neural processes of fluent and impaired reading. It first tracks the cortical sequence of activation when reading familiar words, and then considers the case of unfamiliar words. After contrasting the sequence of activation in reading with that in speech perception, it focuses on cortical correlates of dyslexia. A comparison of reports on neurophysiological and hemodynamic signatures of reading then follows. The chapter concludes with a glimpse into recent advances and possible future directions.

Keywords:   MEG, magnetoencephalography, neural processes, reading, speech perception, dyslexia
