Neuro-PC: Causal Functional Connectivity from Neural Dynamics

  title={Neuro-PC: Causal Functional Connectivity from Neural Dynamics},
  author={Rahul Biswas and Eli Shlizerman},
  journal={arXiv: Neurons and Cognition},
Functional connectome extends the anatomical connectome by capturing the relations between neurons according to their activity and interactions. When these relations are causal, the functional connectome maps how neural activity flows within neural circuits and provides the possibility for inference of functional neural pathways, such as sensory-motor-behavioral pathways. While there exist various information approaches for non-causal estimations of the functional connectome, approaches that…

The elusive concept of brain connectivity

Advancing functional connectivity research from association to causation

This work incorporates best practices from diverse areas of FC research to illustrate how FC methods can be refined to improve inferences about neural mechanisms, with properties of causal neural interactions as a common ontology to facilitate cumulative progress across FC approaches.

Functional connectomics from neural dynamics: probabilistic graphical models for neuronal network of Caenorhabditis elegans

An approach to represent neuronal network dynamics as a probabilistic graphical model (PGM) that captures how stimuli propagate through the network and thus represents causal dependencies between neurons and stimuli is proposed.

Dynamic functional connectivity of neurocognitive networks in children

Findings lay the groundwork for understanding how variation in the developing chronnectome is related to risk for neurodevelopmental disorders by illuminating the nature of dynamic neural interactions during development.

Network centrality in the human functional connectome.

Using resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging data from 1003 healthy adults, a broad array of network centrality measures are investigated to provide novel insights into connectivity within the whole-brain functional network (i.e., the functional connectome).

Effective Connectivity within the Default Mode Network: Dynamic Causal Modeling of Resting-State fMRI Data

The results replicate some data from earlier works on effective connectivity within the DMN as well as provide new insights on internal DMN relationships and brain’s functioning at resting state.
