Abstract

Post-mortem studies by Galaburda and colleagues on the brains of developmental dyslexics found characteristic neuronal abnormalities: ectopias, microgyria, and fewer large-soma cells in sensory thalamus. An association between dyslexia and immune dysfunction has also been proposed. We describe a mechanism which may explain these observations. Platelet-activating ng factor(PAF) is a pro-inflammatory lipid implicated in neurological disorders. Wepropose that PAF may also be involved in dyslexia. (C) 2001 Harcourt Publishers Ltd.
