ADHD: And even MORE evidence suggestive of a brain network connectivity disorder

And more evidence for ADHD as being related to poor brain network connectivity. (click here for more posts) Click on images to enlarge.






And, again, this extant research is consistent with the three-level hypothesized explanation of the impact of certain brain training programs on controlled attention (click here for special white paper as well as on-line PPT modules and keynote video presentation of this model).

The external/internal-directed cognition (EDC/IDC) framework

I just skimmed the article below. I like the way it uses the terms external/internal-directed (ECD/ICD) cognition framework to discuss the differences and relations between the activities of the default brain network and the executive control networks (click here for excellent article explaining these two networks)

Click on images to enlarge












I resonate to this EDC/IDC framework as it is relevant to my white paper on improving attentional control (via IM training--although the paper, IMHO, is more about how different brain training programs may work). That hypothesized model is in the figure above, and can be found at the MindHub.

Working memory training (n-back task) improves fluid intelligence (Gf) 3-4 IQ points

Interesting meta-analysis suggestingthat working memory training, via the n-back task, over a relatively short period of time, can improve fluid intelligence/reasoning (Gf). Conservative estimate of 3-4 Gf IQ points improvement. Click on images to enlarge.

Article: Targeted brain training may help you multitask better - more on attentional control


Targeted brain training may help you multitask better
http://www.psypost.org/2014/08/targeted-brain-training-may-help-multitask-better-27502

Sent via Flip board

Consistent with the research in this article, have proposed that the training of attentional control (aka, controlled attention) may hold "one" (of multiple) keys to why some brain training programs may be effective.

You can find a MindHub Pub white paper where I lay out this information here.  


Also, other AC related posts at the Brain Clock blog can be found at the following two links.   Sorry for the two links with overlap.  I need to do some blog maintenance.




FYI. The MindHub web portal has been updated

I finally got around to updating the MindHub web portal. There is new information under most major categories. Enjoy.

Article: The Real Neuroscience of Creativity - with comments and FYI

I agree with Scott Barry Kaufman on the importance of the default brain network.  However, at times one needs to learn how to shut down the default network "on demand" and invoke the executive control network.  I have written a white paper on this topic, in the context of trying to explain how Interactive Metronome appears to help people train their abilities to "quiet the buzzy mind", which is available at the following link.  It also covers the three brain networks discussed by Scott in his article at the Huffington Post.  Enjoy.


More information can be found at the MindHub (www.themindhub.com)







Article: The Amazing Benefits of Daydreaming on the Mind - with comment


I also have a deep interest in the default brain network and have made a number of FYI and written posts to the Brain Clock blog about this important brain network  http://www.brainclock.net/search/label/default%20brain%20network

Just think of:  mind wandering; TUTs (task unrelated thoughts); and REST (rapid episodic thinking)
