- Fitness, but not physical activity, is related to functional integrity of brain networks associated with agingMichelle W Voss
Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, University of Iowa, USA Electronic address
Neuroimage 131:113-25. 2016..Overall, our findings provide further support that cardiorespiratory fitness is an important factor in moderating the adverse effects of aging on cognitively and clinically relevant functional brain networks. ..
- Neurobiological markers of exercise-related brain plasticity in older adultsMichelle W Voss

- Bridging animal and human models of exercise-induced brain plasticityMichelle W Voss
Department of Psychology, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA Aging Mind and Brain Initiative AMBI, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, USA Electronic address
Trends Cogn Sci 17:525-44. 2013..Overall, converging evidence suggests exercise benefits brain function and cognition across the mammalian lifespan, which may translate into reduced risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD) in humans. ..
- The influence of aerobic fitness on cerebral white matter integrity and cognitive function in older adults: results of a one-year exercise interventionMichelle W Voss
Department of Psychology, The University of Iowa, Iowa
Hum Brain Mapp 34:2972-85. 2013..Therefore, while not all findings are consistent with previous research, we provide novel evidence for correlated change in training-induced aerobic fitness, WM integrity, and cognition among healthy older adults...
- Aging brain from a network science perspective: something to be positive about?Michelle W Voss
Department of Psychology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, United States of America
PLoS ONE 8:e78345. 2013..Results suggest that large-scale organizing properties of the brain differ with normal aging, and this perspective may offer novel insight into understanding age-related differences in cognitive function and well-being. ..
- White matter microstructure mediates the relationship between cardiorespiratory fitness and spatial working memory in older adultsLauren E Oberlin
Department of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh, USA Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, University of Pittsburgh, USA Electronic address
Neuroimage 131:91-101. 2016..These results suggest that greater aerobic fitness levels are associated with higher levels of white matter microstructural organization, which may, in turn, preserve spatial memory performance in older adulthood. ..
- Age-related differences in cortical recruitment and suppression: implications for cognitive performanceRuchika Shaurya Prakash
Department of Psychology, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, United States
Behav Brain Res 230:192-200. 2012..This study adds to the existing gamut of aging literature, providing evidence that DMN function is critical to cognitive functioning in older adults...
- Is Traumatic Brain Injury Associated with Reduced Inter-Hemispheric Functional Connectivity? A Study of Large-Scale Resting State Networks following Traumatic Brain InjuryArianna Rigon
1 Neuroscience Graduate Program, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa
J Neurotrauma 33:977-89. 2016..Our findings suggest that distinct RSNs display specific patterns of aberrant FC following TBI; this represents a step forward in the search for biomarkers useful for early diagnosis and treatment of TBI-related cognitive impairment. ..

- Are There Age-Related Differences in the Ability to Learn Configural Responses?Rachel Clark
Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Neuroscience, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, United States of America
PLoS ONE 10:e0137260. 2015..The configural response learning task provides insight into the task demands that constrain learning abilities in older adults. ..
- Training and transfer of training in rapid visual search for camouflaged targetsMark B Neider
Department of Psychology, University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida, United States of America
PLoS ONE 8:e83885. 2013..Our findings suggest that training to break camouflage is related to the tuning of perceptual mechanisms and not strategic shifts in overt attention. ..
