Example text

Zihl’s seminal paper of 1995 is a landmark in both the description of eye-movement patterns in hemianopic alexia (he prefers the term hemianopic dyslexia) and its amelioration with scrolling text therapy [2]. He studied an impressive 50 patients, half with left-sided hemianopias and half with right. They were studied soon after their stroke (6 weeks on average) and so would have had only a little time to compensate for their hemianopia in general and probably almost none in terms of their reading behavior.
