Title - Influence of Fitness on Age-Related Differences in Varieties of Cognitive Control: BOLD Modulations During Predictability, Switching, and Updating

Speaker - Paulina Skolasinska
PhD Student, UT Dallas

Physical activity is thought to be a neuroprotective factor able to mitigate the age-related cognitive decline, particularly in the domain of working memory and cognitive control. The study discussed in this talk investigated the neural correlates of two cognitive control mechanisms, working memory updating and switching, when the probe-cue expectancy is predictable or unpredictable, in the context of physical activity and healthy aging.
