  Brain Network Organization Changes Influence Improvements in Executive Function
 
Danielle Bassett, Eduardo D. Glandt Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor in Bioengineering, recently collaborated with colleagues from the Perelman School of Medicine on a study that looks at how brain networks change as children develop into adolescence. Bassett's previous work on applying network science principles to neuroscience has suggested that the organization of these networks helps lead to "cognitive control."
