Brain Training Game Improves Executive Functions and Processing Speed in the Elderly: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Background The beneficial effects of brain training games are expected to transfer to other cognitive functions, but these beneficial effects are poorly understood. Here we investigate the impact ofExpand

The association between resting functional connectivity and creativity.
The analysis of functional connectivity at rest (rFC) enables us to know how brain regions within and between networks interact. In this study, we used resting-state functional magnetic resonanceExpand

Regional gray matter volume of dopaminergic system associate with creativity: Evidence from voxel-based morphometry
TLDR
We found positive correlations between regional gray matter volume and individual creativity in several regions such as the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, bilateral striata, tegmental ventral area and periaqueductal gray. Expand

Male elderly subthreshold depression patients have smaller volume of medial part of prefrontal cortex and precentral gyrus compared with age-matched normal subjects: a voxel-based morphometry.
BACKGROUND The brain morphological changes in subthreshold depression (sD) have not been clarified. We examined the structural difference in regional gray matter volume between community-dwellingExpand
