Human Brain Networks in Time: From Fast Dynamics to Changes across the Lifespan
The convergence of new empirical methodologies and computational analysis tools has led to the emergence of human connectomics, the mapping and modeling of brain networks. In this talk, I will explore the generative mechanisms that underpin networks of functional connectivity among brain regions and discuss recent work that focuses on how these functional networks change across time. Functional connectivity is increasingly seen as inherently dynamic and exhibits characteristic patterns of change across multiple time scales, from seconds/minutes (in the course of resting-state and task-evoked neural activity) to the many years comprising the human lifespan.
