  journal={arXiv: Neurons and Cognition},
It has become increasingly popular to study the brain as a network due to the realization that functionality cannot be explained exclusively by independent activation of specialized regions. Instead, across a large spectrum of behaviors, function arises due to the dynamic interactions between brain regions. The existing literature on functional brain networks focuses mainly on a battery of network properties characterizing the "resting state" using for example the modularity, clustering, or… 
Identifying Distinguishing Factors in Predicting Brain Activities - An Inclusive Machine Learning Approach
This work adopts a more inclusive approach: generating multiple graphs using different density thresholds for each subject; and describing each graph with both global and local graph invariants to help machine learning methods to automatically identify most discriminating factors in predicting brain activities with much higher accuracy.
Connectomics and new approaches for analyzing human brain functional connectivity
This review describes several outstanding problems in brain functional connectomics with the goal of engaging researchers from a broad spectrum of data sciences to help solve these problems.


Network-based statistic: Identifying differences in brain networks
Resting-state functional connectivity reflects structural connectivity in the default mode network.
The results demonstrate that resting-state functional connectivity reflects structural connectivity and that combining modalities can enrich the understanding of these canonical brain networks.
Connectivity differences in brain networks
Functional Interactions as Big Data in the Human Brain
An emerging approach embraces the complexity of human brain function, accounting for the fact that neural representations are widely distributed, neural processes involve interactions between regions, interactions vary by cognitive state, and the space of interactions is massive.
Mapping Human Whole-Brain Structural Networks with Diffusion MRI
Based on diffusion MRI, this work proposes an efficient methodology to generate large, comprehensive and individual white matter connectional datasets of the living or dead, human or animal brain, which enables us to study the basic and potentially complex network properties of the entire brain.
Dynamic reconfiguration of human brain networks during learning
This work investigates the role of modularity in human learning by identifying dynamic changes of modular organization spanning multiple temporal scales and develops a general statistical framework for the identification of modular architectures in evolving systems.
Cortical High-Density Counterstream Architectures
An exponential distance rule is derived that predicts many binary and weighted features of the cortical network, including efficiency of information transfer, the high specificity of long-distance compared to short-distance connections, wire length minimization, and the existence of a highly interconnected cortical core.
Neural Substrates of Response-based Sequence Learning using fMRI
Neural correlates of sequence retrieval associated with the order of motor responses were identified in a variant of the serial reaction time task in which training occurred with a spatially incompatible mapping between stimuli and finger responses.
