White Matter Microstructure in Superior Longitudinal Fasciculus Associated with Spatial Working Memory Performance in Children

Description: Spatial working memory (SWM) performance improves significantly throughout the childhood years, and several lines of evidence implicate the left fronto-parietal cortices and connecting fiber tracts in SWM processing. Here we report results from a study of 76 typically-developing children, 7 to 13 years of age. Children were assessed with the CANTAB SWM task, and diffusion-weighted imaging, which were analysed using tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS). The unthresholded t-map of the correlation between FA and SWM performance (i.e., between errors), after controlling for age, has been uploaded.
