September 27, 2018 Exploring the Relationship Between Improvement in an Intensive Learning Intervention and Changes in Resting-state Functional Connectivity

A study described in the accompanying abstract, ‘Exploring the Relationship Between Improvement in an Intensive Learning Intervention and Changes in Resting-state Functional Connectivity’, was presented at the Sixth Biennial Conference on Brain Connectivity in Montreal, September 27, 2018 http://www.restingstate.com This research was conducted by Audreyana C. Jagger-Rickels, M.A. and Gregory M. Rose, Ph.D. of Southern Illinois University. They found resting state connectivity changes in the brains of students engaged in the Arrowsmith Cognitive Intensive Program Brainex Symbol Relations exercise that were related to improvement in the task. Here is a brief description of the three networks identified.
Salience Network

Frontoparietal Network

Default Mode Network
