Title - Domain-General Frontal-Parietal Mechanisms Underlying Working Memory-Processing Speed Relationships

Speaker - Yuguang (Irene) Zhao
PhD Student, UT Dallas

This study investigated the neural basis of individual differences in working memory (WM) and processing speed by comparing fMRI patterns during the performance of each type of task. Results showed that fMRI patterns generated during the processing speed task could differentiate individuals’ performance on working memory, but those patterns generated during the working memory task could not discriminate performance differences. Results suggest that WM performance depends upon the neural substrate of processing-speed.
