Training of Working Memory Impacts Structural Connectivity
TLDR
Results showed training-induced plasticity in regions that are thought to be critical in working memory, including regions adjacent to the intraparietal sulcus and the anterior part of the body of the corpus callosum after training.
Relationship Between Body Mass Index and Gray Matter Volume in 1,428 Healthy Individuals
Objective: To investigate any correlation between BMI and brain gray matter volume, we analyzed 1,428 healthy Japanese subjects by applying volumetric analysis and voxel‐based morphometry (VBM) using
Brain Training Game Improves Executive Functions and Processing Speed in the Elderly: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
The results showed that playing Brain Age for 4 weeks could lead to improve cognitive functions (executive functions and processing speed) in the elderly, indicating that there is a possibility which the elderly could improve executive functions andprocessing speed in short term training.
The association between resting functional connectivity and creativity.
TLDR
Higher creativity measured by DT is associated with rFC between the mPFC and the PCC, the key nodes of the default mode network (DMN), comparable to the previously reported psychological associations between schizotypy and creativity.
Age‐related changes in topological organization of structural brain networks in healthy individuals
TLDR
The brain network changed slightly, developing into a more distributed organization from young to middle age, and shifted to a more localized organization in old age, providing quantitative insights into topological principles of structural brain networks and changes related to normal aging.
Working Memory Training Using Mental Calculation Impacts Regional Gray Matter of the Frontal and Parietal Regions
TLDR
IATWMMC was associated with reduced regional gray matter volume in the bilateral fronto-parietal regions and the left superior temporal gyrus, which confirms the training-induced plasticity in psychological mechanisms and the plasticity of gray matter structures in regions that have been assumed to be under strong genetic control.
