A complete understanding of the brain requires an integrated description of the numer- ous scales and levels of neural organization. That means studying the interplay of genes and synapses, but also the relation between the structure and dynamics of the whole brain, which ultimately leads to different types of behavior, from perception to action, while asleep or awake. Yet, multiscale brain modeling is challenging, in part because of the difficulty to simultaneously access information from… 

Statistical Models of Complex Brain Networks

A discussion on how emerging results and tools from statistical graph modeling, associated with forthcoming improvements in experimental data acquisition, could lead to a probabilistic description of complex systems in network neuroscience.

Complex topological features of reservoirs shape learning performances in bio-inspired recurrent neural networks

The complex topological features characterizing biophysical computing systems such as connectomes can be used to design efficient bio-inspired artificial neural networks, with performance depending on the nature – stochastic or deterministic – of input signals.

Dynamic event-triggered control for intra/inter-layer synchronization in multi-layer networks



The Dynamic Brain: From Spiking Neurons to Neural Masses and Cortical Fields

It is argued that elaborating principled and informed models is a prerequisite for grounding empirical neuroscience in a cogent theoretical framework, commensurate with the achievements in the physical sciences.

Colloquium: Control of dynamics in brain networks

Forward-looking discussion regarding how emerging results from network control -- especially approaches that deal with nonlinear dynamics or more realistic trajectories for control transitions -- could be used to directly address pressing questions in neuroscience is discussed.

This paper introduces a theoretical framework for neural systems in which the dynamics are nested within a multiscale architecture and a framework for relating the dynamical behaviour of the system to measured observables is presented and further extensions to capture wave phenomena and mode coupling are suggested.

Multi-scale brain networks

Dynamic models of large-scale brain activity

Evidence supports the view that collective, nonlinear dynamics are central to adaptive cortical activity and aberrant dynamic processes appear to underlie a number of brain disorders.

Graph theoretical analysis of complex networks in the brain

These studies suggest that the human brain can be modelled as a complex network, and may have a small-world structure both at the level of anatomical as well as functional connectivity, and increasing evidence that various types of brain disease may be associated with deviations of the functional network topology from the optimal small- world pattern.

Structural and Functional Brain Networks: From Connections to Cognition

It is concluded that the emergence of dynamic functional connectivity, from static structural connections, calls for formal (computational) approaches to neuronal information processing that may resolve the dialectic between structure and function.

Cognitive Network Neuroscience

The methodology of network science as applied to the particular case of neuroimaging data is described and its uses in investigating a range of cognitive functions including sensory processing, language, emotion, attention, cognitive control, learning, and memory are reviewed.

Can we neglect the multi-layer structure of functional networks?

A Complex Systems Perspective on Neuroimaging Studies of Behavior and Its Disorders

The study of complex systems deals with emergent behavior that arises as a result of nonlinear spatiotemporal interactions between a large number of components both within the system, as well as
