Cognition requires a high level of coordination among regions of a brain network. The structural integrity of the brain will affect the function of the brain networks and thus cognitive performance. Working memory, the capacity to hold information in mind, is affected by increasing age and genes. We will investigate how brain structure changes due to age and different genes alter the functioning of the brain network supporting working memory. The results will lead to greater understanding of how age and genes alter brain function, and will aid in understanding how diseases alter normal function in healthy subjects.
