Welcome to Orthoblography

This is a scientific blog dealing with orthographic encoding in visual word recognition, written from the point of view of the SERIOL model. Gratifyingly, research into orthographic processing in normal and dyslexic populations is heating up. With the increasing activity in this field, I wanted forum in which to comment on recent publications (especially those that make incorrect claims about the SERIOL model). I also wanted a place in which to rapidly disseminate new ideas. Hence, Orthoblography.

This blog is intended for researchers already familiar with the model. If you are not familiar with it, but would like to be, you should first read Whitney (2001). Since that publication, modifications have been made to the bigram layer of the model, as described in Whitney (in press; Language and Cognitive Processes).
