In this chapter, we will explore the evidence that informs reading research within psycholinguistics. We will look at the neurological disorders associated with reading. These include various types of dyslexia and their specific deficit types have the potential to provide new insights onto the process of normal reading. We will then look at some models of reading and the evidence they use to inform their stages and information processing.
