Modeling neural structure-function relationships and identifying neural predictors of cognitive-linguistic ability in older adults and stroke survivors

Overview

The purpose of this study is to examine the brain?s organization of structure (how the brain looks) and function (how areas of the brain interact with each other) and how this relates to cognition. Specifically, we are interested in how brain anatomy and its related functions are associated with cognitive-linguistic (e.g. attention, memory, spoken language) ability.

Description

This is a research study examining the organization of structure-to-function in the brain and relates that organization to describing cognitive-linguistic function.
