Note:

The goal of the proposed research is to investigatge the influence of white matter connectivity in the brain on functional neruoimaging patterns seen in older adults by measuring age-related differences in white matter integrity (e.g., fractional anisotropy) in major connective tracts in the brain (e.g., corpus callosum, superior longitudinal fasciculus), age-related differences in neural activation to difficulty on cognitively challenging fMRI tasks, and age-related differences in cognitive ability in healthy young, middle-aged and older adults across a three year period to asess the moderating effects among these variables.
