Abstract  Developmental dyslexia is a highly heritable mental disorder. In the last decade, utilizing association analysis to uncover genetic mechanisms of dyslexia has become a new trend. In terms of methodology, research in association analysis can be divided into three approaches: family based studies, case-control studies and quantitative trait association studies. Combined with other techniques, such as genome-wide scan, neuroimaging and gene function, this new trend enables researchers better examine genetic mechanisms of developmental dyslexia from multiple perspectives across gene, brain, and behavior.
