I am surprised to read how researcher's understanding of the biology behind dyslexia and the specific genes related to this condition was significantly small prior to this recent experiment. It shows that even with the advances made this far into the 21st century, there is still much to learn and understand. Also, at the end of the article the lead researcher is quoted saying how this discovery underlines the importance of standardized testing in helping to identify dyslexia. With the importance and relevance of standardized testing being a debatable topic, its interesting to hear of an argument being made for the importance of standardized tests.
