Poster Abstract
One dyslexia candidate gene-PCSK6- has recently been proposed to provide a molecular link between brain asymmetry, handedness and reading impairment.[1]

Studying resting state neuro-functional interactions and their network distribution may tell us more about differences in typical and a typical brain development.

Combining neuroimaging techniques and genetic information may provide a powerful means to investigate the biological basis of reading delay.

Here, we used a MEG source-space method and Minimum Spanning Tree sub-graph to investigate resting state functional connectivity and topology in children with diagnoses of dyslexia with and without PCSK6 genetic risk.[2]
