Radio Causeway: Brain scans that predict learning? Danielle S. Bassett PhD – May 3, 2011

Danielle S. Bassett, PhD takes the time to come by Radio Causeway to discuss a recent article she co authored looking at the use of brain scans in predicting learning.  Dr. Bassett is a post doctoral research associate at the Complex Systems Group in the Department of Physics at UC Santa Barbara.  The article titled, Dynamic reconfiguration of human brain networks during learning was published in the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

‘They found evidence that the flexibility of a person’s brain can be used to predict how well someone will learn. “Parts of the brain communicate with one another very strongly, so they form a sort of module of intercommunicating regions of the brain,” said first author Danielle S. Bassett.’ (Press Release)
