Beyond Feeling: Chronic Pain Hurts the Brain, Disrupting the Default-Mode Network Dynamics
Chronic pain patients suffer from more than just pain; depression and anxiety, sleep disturbances, and decision-making abnormalities (Apkarian et al., 2004a) also significantly diminish their qualityExpand

Criticality in Large-Scale Brain fMRI Dynamics Unveiled by a Novel Point Process Analysis
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) techniques have contributed significantly to our understanding of brain function. Current methods are based on the analysis of gradual and continuousExpand

The entropic brain: a theory of conscious states informed by neuroimaging research with psychedelic drugs
Entropy is a dimensionless quantity that is used for measuring uncertainty about the state of a system but it can also imply physical qualities, where high entropy is synonymous with high disorder.Expand

Chronic Pain and the Emotional Brain: Specific Brain Activity Associated with Spontaneous Fluctuations of Intensity of Chronic Back Pain
Living with unrelenting pain (chronic pain) is maladaptive and is thought to be associated with physiological and psychological modifications, yet there is a lack of knowledge regarding brainExpand

Spontaneous cortical activity in awake monkeys composed of neuronal avalanches
Spontaneous neuronal activity is an important property of the cerebral cortex but its spatiotemporal organization and dynamical framework remain poorly understood. Studies in reduced systems—tissueExpand

How Swarms Build Cognitive Maps
Swarms of social insects construct trails and networks of regular traffic via a process of pheromone laying and following. These patters constitute what is known in brain science as a cognitive map.Expand
