A brain network linked to introspective tasks -- such as forming the
self-image or understanding the motivations of others -- is less
intricate and well-connected in children, scientists at Washington
University School of Medicine in St. Louis have learned. They also
showed that the network establishes firmer connections between various
brain regions as an individual matures.
scientists are working to establish a picture of how these connections
and other brain networks normally develop and interact. They want to
use that picture to conduct more detailed assessments of the effects of
aging, brain injuries and conditions such as autism on brain function.
"Having this information will not only
help us understand what's going wrong in these patients, it will also
allow us to better assess whether and how future interventions are
providing those patients with effective treatment," says senior author
Bradley L. Schlaggar, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of pediatrics,
radiology, neurology and anatomy and neurobiology.
