英文摘要: Study of bilingual brain has provided evidence for probable advantageous outcomes of early second language learning and brain structural correlates to these outcomes. DMRI connectometry is a novel approach that tracts fibers based on correlation of the adjacent voxels with a variable of interest or group differences. Using the data deposited by Pliatsikas et al., we investigated through diffusion MRI connectometry and correlation analysis, the structural differences in white matter tracts of 20 healthy sequential bilingual adults who used English as a second language on a daily basis, compared to 25 age matched in fiber differentiation analyses. Connectometry results revealed increased connectivity in corpus callosum (CC), bilateral cingulum, arcuate fasciculus (AF), and left IFOF of...
