The present study was conducted to investigate the effects of Inspiratory Muscle Training (IMT) on brain activity in healthy people using resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging (RS-fMRI). Participants were assigned into a training group (n=14), which consisted of 2 subgroups, namely sham group (n=7) and treatment group (n=7) and their native a baseline (n=14) group. Apart from global correlations, brain intrinsic networks differences between groups and subgroups were also examined. Compared to the baseline and sham there was a decrease in global BOLD signal changes and more localized clusters of activation in the treatment group.
