[Full Text]


• Quantified variability in evoked neural responses of children with and without dyslexia.
• A subset of children with dyslexia had significantly higher variability in cortex.
• Higher variability observed in auditory and visual domains in multiple reading network nodes.
• Risk alleles in KIAA0319 were related to degree of variability in auditory cortex.
• Results support unstable neural responses as a mechanism for some cases of dyslexia.
