More on "white matter matters"




A nice summary of the importance of white matter as the brain's communication backbone system over at the IM-Home blog.

Note that some of my writings are featured in the post and that I do have a conflict of interest via my consultant role with Interactive Metronome.

As per most contemporary research, such internally generated thoughts (task unrelated thoughts or TUTS; mind wandering) are primarily related to the default brain network.  See variety of posts at the Brain Clock Blog about the default brain network at this link:

Brain training: Building more ecological valid training to induce transfer

Interesting thoughts re: increasing the complexity, diversity and novelty of brain training programs to obtain more transfer beyond the task. I particularly think that brain training the incorporates cognitive and motor performance is an excellent idea.

White matter matters: Brain synchronization via the brain's communication subway system

White matter, in contrast to the grey squiggly mass (the cerebelum) that most people associate with the human brain, was for many years the research step-child to the cerebelum. That is no more. White matter, which has been called the brain's subway, super information system, or interstate highway communication system, now has a glass slipper. Research during the past decade has implicated white matter as performing the critical task of connecting and synchronizing different brain regions or networks so they can perform a wide variety of complex human cognitive or motor behaviors. The white matter system is considered the communication backbone system for the flow of information in the brain. Of particular interest (to me) is the parietal-frontal network, which is implicated as central to abstract human intelligence, fluid intelligence (Gf), working memory and attentional control (see prior posts re: the P-FIT model).

In a MindHub white paper I hypothesized that increasing white matter tract integrity may be a key mechanism behind the efficacy of the Interactive Metronome neuro-timing intervention (see figure below). I have gone as far as suggesting that the efficacy of many brain training/fitness programs may stem from a common domain-general effect--improving communnication between and within various brain network(s) via more efficient white matter tract speed and communication. [Click on image to enlarge]
White matter integrity or dysfunction as been implicated in a wide variety of cognitive disorders or abilities, including cognitive control, math and intellectual giftedness, fluid intelligence or reasoning, processing speed, reading, decrease in cognitive functioning, meditation, working memory, vascular cognitive impairement, ADHD, autism, and cognitve and language maturation in infants. A sampling of recent white matter research article abstracts I have accumulated can be found by clicking here.
White matter matters!
