Frustrated hierarchical synchronization and emergent complexity in the human connectome network

The origin of the dynamic freezing behind these features is uncovered by using spectral graph theory and it is discussed how the emerging complex synchronization patterns relate to the need for the brain to access a large variety of functional attractors and dynamical repertoires without ad hoc fine-tuning to a critical point.

Graph Properties of the Adult Drosophila Central Brain

This work considers the Drosophila central brain connectome as a directed graph with weighted edges, which enables it to look at a number of graph properties, compare them to human designed logic systems, and speculate on how this may affect function.

Criticality in Large-Scale Brain fMRI Dynamics Unveiled by a Novel Point Process Analysis

The method allows, for the first time, to define a theoretical framework in terms of an order and control parameter derived from fMRI data, where the dynamical regime can be interpreted as one corresponding to a system close to the critical point of a second order phase transition.

Landau–Ginzburg theory of cortex dynamics: Scale-free avalanches emerge at the edge of synchronization

Analysis of large-scale collective properties of the cortex by using a mesoscopic approach following the principle of parsimony of Landau–Ginzburg constitutes a framework to rationalize the possible collective phases and phase transitions of cortical networks in simple terms, thus helping to shed light on basic aspects of brain functioning from a very broad perspective.

Self-similar correlation function in brain resting-state fMRI

It is shown that this two-point correlation function extracted from resting-state fMRI data exhibits self-similarity in space and time, which implies that the brain is spontaneously at a continuously changing intermediate state between two extremes, one of excessive cortical integration and the other of complete segregation.

The Human Connectome: A Structural Description of the Human Brain

A research strategy to achieve the connection matrix of the human brain (the human “connectome”) is proposed, and its potential impact is discussed.

Critical synchronization dynamics of the Kuramoto model on connectome and small world graphs

The synchronization behavior of this model is determined by solving it numerically on a large, weighted human connectome network, containing 836733 nodes, in an assumed homeostatic state, and the control-parameter dependent exponent suggests extended dynamical criticality below the transition point.

The topology of large Open Connectome networks for the human brain

This work applies statistical model selection to characterize the degree distributions of graphs containing up to nodes and edges of the structural human connectome, finding that a three-parameter generalized Weibull distribution is a good fit to most of the observed degree distributions.

Spike avalanches in vivo suggest a driven, slightly subcritical brain state

The results suggest that neural activity in vivo shows a mélange of avalanches, and not temporally separated ones, and that their global activity propagation can be approximated by the principle that one spike on average triggers a little less than one spike in the next step.
