Altered neural substrates within cognitive networks of postpartum women during working memory process and resting-state

Yunjin Bak, Yoonjin Nah, Sanghoon Han, Seung-Koo Lee, Na-Young Shin
2020 Scientific Reports  
Based on these results, we performed network connectivity analysis using nodes of the TPN and DMN.  ...  Our results suggest that postpartum women might have functional alterations in the DMN, and that hyper-activation in the TPN during a task might be a compensatory mechanism to maintain working memory performance  ...  Acknowledgements This study was supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea Grant funded by the Korean Government (NRF-2014R1A1A2055116).  ...

Depression, rumination and the default network

Marc G. Berman, Scott Peltier, Derek Evan Nee, Ethan Kross, Patricia J. Deldin, John Jonides
2010 Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience  
Major depressive disorder (MDD) has been characterized by excessive default-network activation and connectivity with the subgenual cingulate.  ...  These hyper-connectivities are often interpreted as reflecting rumination, where MDDs perseverate on negative, self-referential thoughts.  ...  These images were then normalized with SPM5 (Wellcome Department of Cognitive Neurology, London), and normalization parameters were calculated from the standard MNI template.  ...
