Now that i have figured everything out, I can finally start my marvelous study!
For my participants I decided that I would use 38 medical students
For my control group It will be was set up to match the genders and ages of the PPS
21 female, 17 male with a mean age of 24 to avoid gender bias.
who had not spent time studying for exams and had not had exams in the last 6 months.
oh and controls were scanned at the same first 2 times as the medical students
1. 3 months before the exam2. first or second day after the exam3. 3 months after the exam
For the procedure it will use 3 MRI scans on the med students
After conducting the study...
The medical students had a decrease in grey matter in the occipital parietal lobe
Most changes were observed after the exam remained
3 months later and continues to grow after the exam in the hippocampus.
The medical student's amount of grey matter increased in the posterior parietal cortex (associated with visual short term memory).
Inferial parietal cortex and in posterior hippocampus (associated with navigational and semantic knowledge)
