Cognitive and neural plasticity in aging: General and task-specific limitations

Sari Jones, Lars Nyberg, Johan Sandblom, Anna Stigsdotter Neely, Martin Ingvar, Karl Magnus Petersson, Lars Bäckman
2006 Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews  
In the current paper, we argue that the age-related reduction in cognitive plasticity may be due to (a) deficits in general processing resources, and (b) failure to engage in task-relevant cognitive operations  ...  Future attempts to optimize intervention-related gains in old age should consider targeting both general processing and task-specific origins of age-associated reductions in cognitive plasticity. r  ...  Acknowledgments This research was supported by grants from the Swedish Research Council and the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation to Lars Ba¨ckman.  ...

2011 BioMedical Engineering OnLine  
Accurate automatic segmentation of the caudate nucleus in magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the brain is of great interest in the analysis of developmental disorders.  ...  It may therefore be useful to introduce a more flexible technique for accurate segmentations.  ...  Moreover, we provide a quantitative volumetric analysis of pediatric ADHD, and obtain specifications and results that are comparable to manual analysis based on caudate nucleus appearance.  ...
