In "PERCEPTION", Eric McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook and expertise to help the federal government crack difficult cases. Pierce's intimate knowledge of human behavior and masterful understanding of the mind are matched by his equally odd and imaginative view of the world. Rachel Leigh Cook co-stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce's former student and the person responsible for recruiting him to work for the government. Arjay Smith plays Max Lewicki, Pierce's teaching assistant who has spent nine years at college. Kelly Rowan is Natalie Vincent, Pierce's best friend and every bit his intellectual equal.

I first want to say I truly like this show. However, being one that is dyslexic to the point of as a child I saw all written things totally backward and had to trained and taught to read left to right. I am insulted that you labled an adult as unable to read or write because he was dyslexic. I have a collage degree and am a registered ultrasound and radiologist technologist with supervisory experience in all these fields. For you to suggest to children, who are struggling with this problem, that they will not graduate high school or learn to read is not only insulting, but totally wrong. It isn't as easy as people without dyslexia, but one can be just as successful in any field and in life. Read more

And like autism it can range from low or barely noticeable to so high you can't at all. Here is a web site that should help explain things. Read more
