Adolescents and young adults with surgically treated congenital heart disease (CHD) have been shown to exhibit difficulties with executive functions; however, the neural underpinnings of these impairments have not been previously examined with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The current study employed fMRI to examine the neural mechanisms during a letter n-back task of working memory compared to vigilance. Seventeen participants with CHD (Mage = 17.76 ± 1.72 years; 88% Caucasian… CONTINUE READING
