Sustained attention is associated with right superior longitudinal fasciculus and superior parietal white matter microstructure in children

Description: Sustained attention develops during childhood and has been linked to the right fronto-parietal cortices in functional imaging studies. However, less is known about its relation to white matter (WM) characteristics. Here we investigated whether the microstructure of the WM underlying and connecting the right fronto-parietal cortices was associated with sustained attention performance in a group of 76 typically developing children aged 7–13 years. Children were assessed with the CANTAB RVP task, and diffusion-weighted imaging, which were analysed using tract-based spatial statistics (TBSS). The unthresholded t-map of the correlation between FA and sustained attention performance (i.e., d-prime), after controlling for age, has been uploaded.
