Dyslexia is a common childhood learning disability. The occurrence of dyslexia ranges from 3 to 17.5 %. Etiology remains largely unknown, but substantial evidence from multidisciplinary research suggests that dyslexia is a disorder of genetic origin with a basis in the brain. Many genetic studies indicated that different loci are involved in genetic predisposition of dyslexia. The loci on 6p21.3, 15q15-21 and 18p11.2 have been identified as promising candidate gene regions. Since it is a complex disorder, identification of the specific genetic variants may bring a comprehensive explanation for the etiology of dyslexia. This review provides recent understanding in the field of neurobiology of dyslexia.
