The overall goal of Project 4 is to develop a comprehensive model of structural and functional changes in brain network connectivity that relate to changes in academic skills. Previous research shows that academic skills are linked to task control and attention brain networks in important, but poorly understood, ways. We evaluate features of brain organization associated with developmental outcomes of the educational interventions addressed in Project 3. Ultimately, we will promote novel directions in cognitive neuroscience research that features combinations of several multimodal imaging methods to identify features of brain organization that are crucial for typical development of reading skills and successful intervention outcomes.
