Increasing research has evidenced that our brain retains a capacity to change in response to experience until late adulthood. This implies that cognitive training can possibly ameliorate age-associated cognitive decline by inducing training-specific neural plastic changes at both neural and behavioral levels. This longitudinal study examined the behavioral(More)
BACKGROUND Leisure activity participation has been shown to lower risks of cognitive decline in non-stroke populations. However, effects of leisure activities participation upon cognitive functions and risk of dementia after stroke are unclear. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of recent past leisure activities participation upon cognitive(More)
BACKGROUND Changes in criteria and differences in populations studied and methodology have produced a wide range of prevalence estimates for mild cognitive impairment (MCI). METHODS Uniform criteria were applied to harmonized data from 11 studies from USA, Europe, Asia and Australia, and MCI prevalence estimates determined using three separate definitions(More)
Default-mode network (DMN) has become a prominent network among all large-scale brain networks which can be derived from the resting-state fMRI (rs-fMRI) data. Statistical template labeling the common location of hubs in DMN is favorable in the identification of DMN from tens of components resulted from the independent component analysis (ICA).
