Gender-based functional connectivity differences in brain networks in childhood.

Summary of "Gender-based functional connectivity differences in brain networks in childhood."

Understanding the effect of gender differences on the brain can provide important information to characterize normal changes throughout life and to increase the likelihood of sex-specific approaches for neurological and psychiatric diseases. In this study, Functional Connectivity (FC), Amplitude of Low-Frequency Fluctuations (ALFF) and fractional ALFF (fALFF) analyzes will be compared between female and male brains between the ages of 7 and 18 years using resting state-functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI).

Functional connectivity correlates of infant and early childhood cognitive development.

Childhood is defined by the development of cognitive abilities as well as brain growth and function. While prior neuroimaging studies have investigated early development fragmentally, we studied the t...

Predictive Pattern Classification Can Distinguish Gender Identity Subtypes from Behavior and Brain Imaging.

The exact neurobiological underpinnings of gender identity (i.e., the subjective perception of oneself belonging to a certain gender) still remain unknown. Combining both resting-state functional conn...

Intrinsic Functional Connectivity of the Brain in Adults with a Single Cerebral Hemisphere.

A reliable set of functional brain networks is found in healthy people and thought to underlie our cognition, emotion, and behavior. Here, we investigated these networks by quantifying intrinsic funct...

Brain functional basis of subjective well-being during negative facial emotion processing task-based fMRI.

Subjective well-being (SWB) is the eternal pursuit of all mankind. Individual differences in SWB may reflect the way of emotional processing. Neuroimaging studies have partly examined the neural mecha...

Aging relates to a disproportionately weaker functional architecture of brain networks during rest and task states.

Functional connectivity - the co-activation of brain regions - forms the basis of the brain's functional architecture. Often measured during resting-state (i.e., in a task-free setting), patterns of f...
