How can I investigate causal brain networks with iEEG?

  title={How can I investigate causal brain networks with iEEG?},
  author={Yuhao Huang and Corey J. Keller},
. While many human imaging methodologies probe the structural and functional connectivity of the brain, techniques to investigate cortical networks in a causal and directional manner are critical but limited. The use of iEEG enables several approaches to directly characterize brain regions that are functionally connected and in some cases also establish directionality of these connections. In this chapter we focus on the basis, method and application of the cortico-cortical evoked potential…

Corticocortical Evoked Potentials Reveal Projectors and Integrators in Human Brain Networks
Direct electrical stimulation with recordings from the cortical surface is combined to provide a novel insight into directed, inter-regional influence within the cerebral cortex of awake humans and inform the understanding of large-scale corticocortical influence as well as the interpretation of functional connectivity networks.
The Hippocampus and Amygdala Are Integrators of Neocortical Influence: A CorticoCortical Evoked Potential Study
The directed connectivity between the hippocampus and amygdala and the cerebral cortex in patients implanted with intracranial electrodes using corticocortical evoked potentials (CCEPs) evoked by single-pulse electrical stimulation supports the roles of the hippocampi and amygdala to be integrators of widespread cortical influence.
Functional connectivity in human cortical motor system: a cortico-cortical evoked potential study.
The present study demonstrated a human motor cortico-cortical network connecting anatomically homologous areas of LMCx and MMCx along the rostrocaudal cognitive-motor gradient; and somatotopically Homologous regions in LMCX and M MCx in a reciprocal manner.
A systematic exploration of parameters affecting evoked intracranial potentials in patients with epilepsy
Intrinsic functional architecture predicts electrically evoked responses in the human brain
It is demonstrated that the spatial distribution and magnitude of temporally correlated low-frequency fluctuations observed with R-fMRI during rest predict the pattern and severity of corticocortical evoked potentials elicited within 500 ms after single-pulse electrical stimulation of the cerebral cortex with intracranial electrodes.
Induction and Quantification of Excitability Changes in Human Cortical Networks
B baseline connectivity profile can be used to predict regions susceptible to brain changes and provides a basis for personalizing brain stimulation, and adding prestimulation connectivity features significantly improved model performance.
Temporal order of signal propagation within and across intrinsic brain networks.
It is found that N1 and N2 segments of the evoked responses are associated with intra- and internetwork communications, respectively, which suggest intranetwork prior to internetwork information processing at the subsecond timescale.
Basis profile curve identification to understand electrical stimulation effects in human brain networks
A new machine learning framework to probe how brain regions interact using single-pulse electrical stimulation is presented, and a set of characteristic discovered response shapes are called “basis profile curves” (BPCs), and it is shown how these can be mapped back onto the brain quantitatively.
