A Child's Unique Brain Activity Reveals Their Memory Ability

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 - 12:17

Based on a recent study, carried out by adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) researchers , a child's unique brain activity reveals how good their memories are.

Rosenberg et al. analyzed fMRI data from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) data set, a repository of scans and behavioral tests from over 11,000 children aged nine and ten. Children with better working memory performed better on a range of cognitive, language, and problem-solving tasks, Medical Xpress reports.

Activity in the frontoparietal network during a memory task reflected the individual working memory capabilities of the children, with an activity pattern unique to working memory.

The ABCD data set will reexamine the children for ten years, allowing future studies to explore how the neural signature of working memory evolves across development.
