Stephen Bailey’s talk at ORAL SESSION: Language; Convention in Singapore (Wednesday, 6/20)

Reorganization of resting-state networks while reading and listening: a developmental perspective

Presented During: ORAL SESSION: Language
Wednesday, Jun 20: 11:30 AM  – 11:42 AM

Singapore Convention Center
Room: Room 324-326
One of the chief insights about the “resting” brain is that it segregates into densely intra-connected resting-state networks. These include primary sensory regions but also associative and executive networks. Complicated cognitive tasks such as reading and listening comprehension require rapid coordination between these different networks, but how they transiently reorganize during different language use has not been well-described. Such a line of investigation is particularly valuable in the context of developing readers, who are mapping visual systems onto existing language circuitry: identifying differences between reading and listening comprehension may elucidate which systems uniquely support reading comprehension. In this study, we use graph theory and functional data from oral and written language tasks (i.e., listening and reading comprehension) in children to describe the local and global reorganization of the brain during reading and listening.
