Filling in By Context: The Brain and Lesson Links for Reading

The brain is a remarkable pattern making machine and context is example of this. In filling-in by context, we make an educated guess about what a word means based on other evidence we can find in the sentence. Contextual reading can be a very valuable skill for many dyslexia, but it is also important for any readers who want to expand their vocabulary. When context is visualized on brain imaging, different areas light up all around the brain. Closure by context involves being able to to group words on the basis of direct meaning, indirect associations, and memories of their being used together to predict meaning.
