Recently, non-linear statistical measures such as multi-scale entropy (MSE) have been introduced as indices of the complexity of electrophysiology and fMRI time-series across multiple time scales. In this work, we investigated the neurophysiological underpinnings of complexity (MSE) of electrophysiology and fMRI signals and their relations to functional connectivity (FC). MSE and FC analyses were performed on simulated data using neural mass model based brain network model with the Brain…

Relationship Between Basic Properties of BOLD Fluctuations and Calculated Metrics of Complexity in the Human Connectome Project
TLDR
Differences in complexity across brain areas were highly reliable and were closely linked to differences in the frequency profiles of the rs-fMRI signal.
Interindividual Signatures of fMRI Temporal Fluctuations.
TLDR
Overall, these findings suggest that regional profiles of fMRI temporal characteristics may provide stable markers of individual differences, and motivate future studies to further probe relationships between fMRI time series metrics and behavior.
A Study of Brain Neuronal and Functional Complexities Estimated Using Multiscale Entropy in Healthy Young Adults
TLDR
Using resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging signals in a large cohort of healthy young adults, neuronal and functional complexities estimated by using MSE of BOLD signals and BOLD phase coherence connectivity are mapped at various levels of the brain’s organization.
Altered complexity in resting-state fNIRS signal in autism: a multiscale entropy approach
TLDR
Results indicated that the MSE might serve as a novel measure for RS-fNIRS signals in characterizing autism spectrum disorder in children with ASD.
Measuring robust functional connectivity from resting-state MEG using amplitude and entropy correlation across frequency-bands and temporal scales
TLDR
Findings suggest that local activity at frequencies fS ≳ 10Hz becomes more regular when a region exhibits high levels of resting state connectivity, and average mid-to fine scale variability within each region is negatively correlated with the region’s overall connectivity strength with other brain areas.
Dynamical Complexity Fingerprints of Occupation-Dependent Brain Functional Networks in Professional Seafarers
TLDR
The proposed DBCA is effective for exploring the dynamic complexity changes in voxel-wise activity and region-wise connectivity, showing that occupational experience can reshape seafarers’ dynamic brain complexity fingerprints.

Multiple time scale complexity analysis of resting state FMRI
TLDR
The results showed that MSE of gray matter, rather than white matter, resembles closely that of f−1 noise over multiple time scales, which support the use of MSE analysis as a validation metric for quantifying the complexity of rs-fMRI signals.
Wavelet‐based regularity analysis reveals recurrent spatiotemporal behavior in resting‐state fMRI
TLDR
A wavelet‐based regularity analysis based on noise estimation capabilities of the wavelet transform is developed to measure recurrent temporal pattern stability within the rs‐fMRI signal across multiple temporal scales and found that the brain's default mode network (DMN) areas manifest a higher level of irregularity in rs‐ fMRI time series than rest of the brain.
Network complexity as a measure of information processing across resting-state networks: evidence from the Human Connectome Project
TLDR
The present study is the first to characterize neural complexity in BOLD signals at a high temporal resolution and across different networks and might help clarify the inconsistencies between neural complexity and functional connectivity, thus informing the mechanisms underlying neural complexity.
Consistent resting-state networks across healthy subjects
TLDR
Findings show that the baseline activity of the brain is consistent across subjects exhibiting significant temporal dynamics, with percentage BOLD signal change comparable with the signal changes found in task-related experiments.
Spatiotemporal Dependency of Age-Related Changes in Brain Signal Variability
TLDR
These data further the understanding of changes in brain signal variability across the lifespan, suggesting an inverted U-shaped curve, but with an important qualifier: Unlike earlier in maturation, where the changes are more widespread, changes in adulthood show strong spatiotemporal dependence.
Joint Analysis of Band-Specific Functional Connectivity and Signal Complexity in Autism
TLDR
Group differences between ASD and TD in complexity and FC appear spatially complementary, such that where FC was elevated in ASD, complexity was reduced (and vice versa), and the correlation of regional average complexity and connectivity node strength with symptom severity scores of ASD subjects supported the overall complementarity of connectivity and complexity measures.
Brain Entropy Mapping Using fMRI
TLDR
The entire brain was found to be organized into 7 hierarchical regional BEN networks that are consistent with known structural and functional brain parcellations and suggest BEN mapping as a physiologically and functionally meaningful measure for studying brain functions.
Predicting human resting-state functional connectivity from structural connectivity
TLDR
Although resting state functional connectivity is variable and is frequently present between regions without direct structural linkage, its strength, persistence, and spatial statistics are nevertheless constrained by the large-scale anatomical structure of the human cerebral cortex.
