|Title||Measuring Reading Speed with Positional Noise in Normal Adults|
|Author, Co-Author||Abhishek Mandal, Niall Strang|
Purpose: Adults read quickly when words are presented in a medium size font but an age related reduction occurs in words with small (<0.15 deg) and large letter sizes (>5 deg) (Akutsu et al., 1991). The variability of individual reading speed makes it difficult to determine whether this reduced reading performance results from reduced contrast sensitivity or cognitive decline. Introducing positional noise is likely to affect reading speed more in subjects with cognitive decline but the effect on normal subjects is currently unknown. Here, we measure reading speed in adults using normal text and text with positional noise introduced.
