Dr Richardson holds a Senior Research Fellowship in Physiology at Mansfield College, Oxford in association with the Mansfield Dyslexia Project.

She was asked to write this article on her research for the Mansfield College magazine, where it was published in Spring 2003.

In it, she provides an informal overview of the neurobiology of dyslexia and the clues that have guided her own research in this area. She also explains why dyslexia is best viewed in terms of normal individual differences, and how biological approaches to this and related conditions can offer hope for early recognition as well as better methods of management.
