More highly myelinated white matter tracts are associated with faster processing speed in healthy adults

Chopra, Sidhant; Shaw, Marnie; Shaw, Thomas; Sachdev, Perminder S.; Anstey, Kaarin; Cherbuin, Nicolas


The objective of this study was to investigate whether the estimated myelin content of white matter tracts is predictive of cognitive processing speed and whether such associations are modulated by age. Associations between estimated myelin content and processing speed was assessed in 570 community-living individuals (277 middle-age, 293 older-age). Myelin content was estimated using the mean T1w/T2w magnetic resonance ratio, in six white matter tracts (anterior corona radiata, superior corona...[Show more]
