Dynamics of Brain Function in Preterm-Born Young Adolescents (2020)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Preterm birth is a major risk factor for neurodevelopment impairments often only appearing later in life. The brain is still at a high rate of development during adolescence, making this a promising window for intervention. It is thus crucial to understand the mechanisms of altered brain function in this population. The aim of this thesis is to investigate how the brain dynamically reconfigures its own organisation over time in preterm-born young adolescents. Research to date has mainly focused on structural disturbances or in static features of brain function in this population. However, recent studies have shown that brain activity is highly dynamic, both spontaneously and during performance of a task, and that small disruptions in ... toggle 7 keywordsnon-invasive neuroimaging – functional mri – dynamic analysis – preterm – bold signal variability – co-activation patterns – ppi-caps
