Interesting thread. Again, when proponents of the science of reading are asked to cite specific studies that support specific claims, no answers. Can anyone provide a reference to support highlighted claim?

Any help with these "missing links" - citations to these MRI studies - @markseidenberg @DTWillingham @ehanford or other SOR fans?
Obviously we'd need something beyond presenting isolated letters or words to readers. twitter.com/MaggieEThornto…
