Description

Description

One important question naturally arises from the researchers' preliminary results: what are the underlying neural mechanisms of the striking improvement of cognitive processes in these optimal outcome children? Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) tasks of syntax and face processing will be administered to address this question and exploratory analysis of selected structural variables will be examined to see if the most successful intervention appears to operate on a structurally normal brain.
