Why kids tend to be impulsive
A new study has linked impulsiveness in kids to brain connectivity.
According to the researchers from the University of Murcia, the greater the level of impulsiveness in kids, the greater is the alteration brain connectivity connections.
The team, which studied the changes in the brain that are associated with impulsiveness, said that these patterns can serve as an indicator for predicting the risk of behavioural problems.
Luis J. Fuentes, the main author of the study, said that impulsiveness is a risk factor for the development of serious behavioral problems and among children with a typical development; they can observe individual differences in their interaction with the environment.
The researchers said that the alteration in the connections between the posterior cingulate cortex and the right angular gyrus is also observed in people with antisocial behavior and other cerebral areas that are usually activated when performing given cognitive tasks.
Fuentes added that brain connectivity patterns can serve as biological indicators for predicting the risk of the appearance of behavioural problems and social adaptation difficulties.
