Objectives Useful Field of View training (UFOVt) is an adaptive computerized cognitive intervention that improves visual attention and transfers to maintained health and everyday functioning in older adults. Although its efficacy is well established, the neural mechanisms underlying this intervention are unknown. This pilot study used functional MRI (fMRI) to explore neural changes following UFOVt. Method Task-driven and resting-state fMRI were used to examine changes in brain activity and… Expand
Functional Neural Correlates of a Useful Field of View (UFOV)-Based fMRI Task in Older Adults.
The data elucidate the functional neural correlates of a UFOV-based task, a task used in both cognitive training paradigms and assessment of function, and specific subregions were identified that may be critical for task performance. Expand
Higher-order resting state network association with the useful field of view task in older adults.
Assessment of association of within-network connectivity of the default mode network, dorsal attention network, frontoparietal control network, and cingulo-opercular network with Double Decision task performance, and subcomponents of this task in a sample of 267 healthy older adults confirmed the unique role of the cingul-opERCular network in visual attention and sustained divided attention.

The Effects of Cognitive Training on Brain Network Activity and Connectivity in Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases: a Systematic Review
A working model of the effects of CT on brain activity and connectivity is proposed in the context of current knowledge on compensatory mechanisms that are associated with aging and neurodegenerative diseases. Expand
Structural Neural Correlates of Double Decision Performance in Older Adults
It is shown that less cortical thickness in right temporal, posterior frontal, parietal and occipital lobe structures were significantly associated with poorer Double Decision scores, and a wide array of cortical regions that provide unique contributions to performance on the Double Decision task.

Cognitive Training Attenuates Decline in Physical Function across 10 Years.
This is the first study to demonstrate effects of cognitive training to complex physical function across 10 years, and these gains were greater for those with more baseline depressive symptoms who received more processing speed training. Expand
The impact of behavioral interventions on cognitive function in healthy older adults: A systematic review
A systematic review of 11 types of behavioral interventions and the respective transfer to 19 cognitive domains, as well as transfer to everyday function found process- and strategy-based training demonstrated notable long-term transfer. Expand
A randomized clinical trial of plasticity-based cognitive training in mild traumatic brain injury
Both large and small cognitive function improvements were seen twice as frequently in the treatment group than in the active control group, and no significant between-group effects were seen on other measures, including the directly-observed functional and symptom measures. Expand
Significant visual improvement with vision rehabilitation delayed three decades from disease onset
An adult patient with history of a ruptured arteriovenous malformation showing improvement in visual function from rehabilitation for longstanding homonymous hemianopsia presents the potential for efficacy of visual rehabilitation even decades after the original insult. Expand
De neurale correlaten van cognitieve-functietraining bij ziekte en gezondheid
Cognitieve training is de laatste jaren in opgang als potentiële niet-farmacologische behandeling voor cognitieve stoornissen. Hoewel klinische studies positieve effecten laten zien van cognitieveExpand

Training-induced functional activation changes in dual-task processing: an FMRI study.
It was found that most regions involved in dual-task processing before training showed reductions in activation after training, and many of the decreases in activation were correlated with improved performance on the task. Expand
The Neural Correlates of an Expanded Functional Field of View.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging and behavioral measures revealed that participants in the training group showed larger improvements across conditions than did those in the control group, and increases in activation between fMRI sessions correlated positively with increases in accuracy between behavioral sessions. Expand
Cognitive training and selective attention in the aging brain: An electrophysiological study
Electrophysiological evidence that SOP training may be successful in counteracting age-related declines in selective attention is provided and changes in ERPs related to attention allocation and capacity following SOPTraining support the idea that training leads to cognitive enhancement. Expand
Changes in resting‐state functionally connected parietofrontal networks after videogame practice
Supporting the main hypothesis, the key finding reveals an increased correlated activity during rest in certain predefined resting state networks attributable to practice with the cognitively demanding tasks of the videogame. Expand
Systematic review and meta-analyses of useful field of view cognitive training
UFOV training did not transfer to other neuropsychological outcomes, but positively enhanced well‐being, health, and quality of life longitudinally, and should be implemented among older adults to improve real‐world functional outcomes and well-being. Expand
Neuroimaging studies of practice-related change: fMRI and meta-analytic evidence of a domain-general control network for learning.
The principal effect of practice was found to be a reduction in the extent and magnitude of activity in a cortical network spanning bilateral dorsal prefrontal, left ventral prefrontal, medial frontal (anterior cingulate), left insular, bilateral parietal, and occipito-temporal areas. Expand
Role of the anterior insula in task-level control and focal attention
It is argued that the aI, at least in part, plays a role in domain-general attentional control and highlight studies supporting this view and suggests that there exists some functional heterogeneity within aI that may subserve related but distinct types of higher-order cognitive processing. Expand
Functional heterogeneity of the supplementary motor area.
The results suggest that SMA is involved in a variety of functional tasks, including motor, sensory, word generation, and working memory. Expand
Aging, Training, and the Brain: A Review and Future Directions
A brief review of the major intervention approaches that have been the focus of past research with healthy older adults (strategy training, multi-modal interventions, cardiovascular exercise, and process-based training), and new approaches that incorporate neuroimaging. Expand
Alpha-band EEG activity in perceptual learning.
The hypothesis that PL, among other mechanisms, leads to task automaticity, especially in the presence of the trained stimuli is investigated, as transfer effects from trained to untrained stimuli may partially depend on differential effort of the individual at the time of stimulus processing.
