Brain structure, function in childhood may predict memory performance
Brain structure, function in childhood may predict memory performance (January 29, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Sweden - Measuring brain structure and function may help predict later memory performance in children, according to a report published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Researchers studied over 60 children and adolescents, between the 6 and 20 years, performing a series of memory and reasoning tests. Children also underwent MRI scans assessing their brain structure, as well as any changes that occurred following a memory task. Participants then returned two years later to undergo the same testing. Results showed that activity in the basal ganglia and thalamus in the initial tests predicted how well the children would perform in the second tests.
