What do finger movements reveal about how the brain reads braille? Barry Hughes, School of Psychology, University of Auckland
Computational models of print reading by the sighted rely on precise, high-resolution recordings of the rapid eye movements and the brief fixations that readers make when encountering text of differing degrees of complexity or ambiguity. These models, in turn, can better inform the teaching of reading and the diagnosis of reading difficulties. What about braille? Couldn’t the same development enable us to understand --computationally and cognitively—how the brain reads braille?
