These images highlight the brain regions in which multisensory subadditivity was significantly related to reading skill. In all the voxels shown in blue, children who were better readers also had lower activity for the audio-visual condition than for the auditory- and visual-only conditions. In panel A, most of the length the left-hemisphere visual object processing stream (including the VWFA) shows this relationship. In panel B, the left-hemisphere middle occipital gyrus (MOG), a region involved in identifying shapes, also shows this relationship.
