Delay Discounting, Intelligence, and Working Memoryprincipal component (rather than the average) of the scores onthe four tasks did not change any of the conclusions, and had thepotential disadvantage of capitalizing on sampling variability.Working MemoryParticipants completed four WM span tasks that all requiredparticipants to keep information actively in mind in the face ofinterference (Conway et al., 2003). Two of these tasks weredesigned to be verbal: Operation span required keeping severalwords in mind over a short delay while doing math problems, andreading span required keeping several letters in mind whilereading sentences out loud and judging their meaningfulness.The other two WM span tasks were spatial: Symmetry spanrequired keeping several positions in mind while makingsymmetry judgments, and rotation span required keeping thesize and direction of several arrows in mind while makingunrelated judgments that required mental rotation. For all fourWM span tasks, keeping more items in mind resulted in a higherscore; all were scored using the same metric (0.00–1.00).Confirmatory factor analysis showed that all four tasks had highloadings on a single factor that accounted for 70% of the totalvariance (loadings ranged from .81 to .86). WM span was takenas the average score across all four measures.In the fMRI scanner, participants performed a 3-back versionof the N-back task, a standard WM paradigm that requirespressing one key if the item presented is identical to thatpresented N trials previously (N 5 3 in our study), and anotherkey if the item is different. Most participants completed the3-back task over six functional scanning runs; 2 participantscompleted four runs, and 9 others completed five runs. Eachscanning run involved two blocks of 32 trials (i.e., 64 trials perfunctional run); trials lasted for 2 s each. We discarded the first3 trials of each block because no match was possible; thus,58 trials from each functional run were eligible for analysis.Three runs had faces as stimuli, and three had concrete nouns;order was counterbalanced across participants. Every run waspreceded by a short video. Four of these videos were intended toinduce positive or negative emotion; the order of emotions wascounterbalanced. We do not focus on the emotion inductionin this report. Our measure of 3-back performance was the signaldetection measure of accuracy, d 0 , averaged across runs.Cronbach’s alpha for d 0 across the six runs was .84.On the 3-back task, participants did not show a speed-accuracytrade-off, r(101) 5 .004, and response times for this taskdid not covary with any effects of interest.fMRI Data AcquisitionWe used a 3-T Allegra System (Siemens, Erlangen, Germany) tocollect whole-brain images: T1-weighted magnetization-preparedrapid gradient-echo (MP-RAGE) structural images (fieldof view 5 256 mm; 256 256 matrix; axial slices 1.25 mmthick) and T2 n -weighted blood-oxygenation-level-dependent(BOLD) functional images (asymmetric spin-echo echo-planarsequence; whole-brain repetition time, TR 5 2,360 ms; echotime 5 25 ms; field of view 5 256 mm; flip angle 5 901; matrix 564 64; axial slices 4 mm thick). Each functional runcomprised 149 sequential whole-brain volumes (32 contiguousslices, 4- 4-mm in-plane resolution).During each functional run, the intertrial intervals werejittered across a range from 0 to 4,720 ms (0–2 whole-brain TRs)in steps of 2,360 ms (1 TR). Each task block was preceded andfollowed by a 35-s resting fixation block. Additionally, eachscanning run began with an unanalyzed fixation period equal to4 TRs, which allowed the scanner to reach steady state.fMRI Data AnalysisData were analyzed using SPM2 software (Wellcome Trust Centerfor Neuroimaging, London; http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm).Each functional run was preprocessed prior to analysis. Data wererealigned using INRIAlign (Freire, Roche, & Mangin, 2002) tocorrect for movement and then coregistered to the participant’sanatomical scan. Images were normalized to Montreal NeurologicalInstitute stereotaxic space using a 12-parameter affinetransformation followed by nonlinear warping using basis functions,resampled into 3-mm isotropic voxels, and smoothed usingan 8-mm full-width at half-maximum Gaussian kernel.For each participant, we computed a basic contrast, activationgreater during the 3-back task than during fixation, across all sixfunctional runs. Each 32-trial block of 3-back performance wasmodeled as a boxcar function convolved with a canonicalhemodynamic response function. The magnitude of neural activityat each voxel was estimated using the general linearmodel. A contrast comparing task-related activity with fixationrelatedactivity produced a statistical parametric map of thet statistic at each voxel for each subject. These maps were usedin all subsequent fMRI analyses.To identify WM-related neural mechanisms related to bothdelay discounting and g, we first isolated candidate regions ofinterest (ROIs) supporting WM-related processes by identifyingregions in which WM-related activity covaried with WM performance.We subjected each resulting ROI to three additionalcriteria to ascertain whether it likely contributed to the relationbetween g and delay discounting. Specifically, activity in theROI had to correlate with both g and delay discounting andto statistically mediate the relation between g and delay discounting(a significance threshold of p < .05, Bonferroni corrected,was used in each analysis). (We also conducted a similaranalysis in which we identified regions with WM-related activitythat correlated with delay discounting and then probed thoseregions using ROI analyses. The findings from this approachagreed with those based on the method reported here.)Accordingly, we first conducted a group-level random-effectsanalysis to identify regions in which activity during the 3-backtask covaried with 3-back accuracy (i.e., regions of 15 or more906 Volume 19—Number 9
