Scientists Demonstrate that as People Age, Their Brains Adopt New Strategies for Memory-Related …

Santa Barbara, CA (Scicasts) — Studies of brain activity typically draw their findings from measurement averages across entire groups of subjects. But new research out of UC Santa Barbara that highlights a novel method of characterizing and comparing the brain dynamics in individuals may signal a shift in that approach. While UCSB scientists have demonstrated that the groups of regions of the brain that synchronize their activity during memory-related tasks get smaller and more numerous with age, the number of connections is as individual as the study participants. The research findings appear in the journal PLOS Computational Biology. “We found that the way our brain organizes its communications changes as we age,” said co-author Kimberly Schlesinger, a Ph.D. student at UCSB. “Even though we saw different patterns of brain activity…
