Normal brain function requires the dynamic interaction of functionally specialized but widely distributed cortical regions. Long-range synchronization of oscillatory signals has been suggested to mediate these interactions within large-scale cortical networks, but direct evidence is sparse. Here we show that oscillatory synchronization is organized in such large-scale networks. We implemented an analysis approach that allows for imaging synchronized cortical networks and applied this technique… Expand
Large-scale cortical synchronization promotes multisensory processing: An EEG study of visual-tactile pattern matching
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the phase of neural coherence within the observed networks predicts behavior, providing further evidence that neural synchronization is crucial for long-range communication in the brain and suggest a possible role of beta-band activity in multisensory integration. Expand
Long-range functional coupling predicts performance: Oscillatory EEG networks in multisensory processing
TLDR
The data-driven analysis approach employed in the current study allowed an unbiased examination of functional brain networks based on EEG source level connectivity data and demonstrated the functional relevance of multiple brain areas that have previously been associated with attention and motor control.

Long-range functional coupling predicts performance: oscillatory EEG networks in multisensory processing
TLDR
The data-driven analysis approach employed in the current study allowed an unbiased examination of functional brain networks based on EEG source level connectivity data and provided evidence that large-scale neuronal coupling is vital to long-range communication in the human brain and relevant for the behavioral outcome in a cognitive task.

Large-scale functional connectivity in multisensory cortex predicts performance
TLDR
The dynamics of functional coupling across visual, auditory and parietal areas during a lateralized detection task in the ferret suggest that fluctuations in the network state, particular with respect to long-range connectivity, are critical determinants of the animals' behavior. Expand
Dynamic large-scale network synchronization from perception to action
TLDR
It is found that perceiving and reporting of weak somatosensory stimuli was correlated with sustained strengthening of large-scale phase synchronization concurrently in delta/theta- (3-7 Hz) and gamma- (40-60 Hz) frequency bands, suggesting that large- scale network synchronization may coordinate neuronal processing across brain regions during perception, decision making, and responding to weak somatoensory stimulus.

Large-scale cortical correlation structure of spontaneous oscillatory activity
TLDR
This work found that spontaneous oscillatory neuronal activity exhibited frequency-specific spatial correlation structure in the human brain and developed an analysis approach that discounts spurious correlation of signal power caused by the limited spatial resolution of electrophysiological measures.

Dynamic Interactions between Large-Scale Brain Networks Predict Behavioral Adaptation after Perceptual Errors
TLDR
It is demonstrated that multiple large-scale brain networks interact dynamically and in a directionally specific manner in different frequency bands to support flexible behavior adaptation during perceptual decision making. Expand
Spontaneous cortical activity transiently organises into frequency specific phase-coupling networks
TLDR
It is reported using MEG that various brain networks show dynamic phase coupling through specific frequency bands in the alpha and delta/theta range transiently during the resting state. Expand
Dynamic changes in large-scale functional connectivity predict performance in a multisensory task
TLDR
The cortical dynamics of functional coupling across visual, auditory and parietal areas during a lateralized detection task in the ferret suggests that fluctuations in the network state, particular with respect to long-range connectivity, are key determinants of the animals’ behavior. Expand
Spontaneous cortical activity transiently organises into frequency specific phase-coupling networks
TLDR
This work uses a novel method for identifying repeating patterns of network dynamics, and shows that resting networks in magnetoencephalography are well characterised by visits to short-lived transient brain states, with spatially distinct power and phase-coupling in specific frequency bands.

An oscillatory hierarchy controlling neuronal excitability and stimulus processing in the auditory cortex.
TLDR
It is proposed that the hierarchical organization of ambient oscillatory activity allows auditory cortex to structure its temporal activity pattern so as to optimize the processing of rhythmic inputs. Expand
Visuomotor integration is associated with zero time-lag synchronization among cortical areas
TLDR
When cats responded to a sudden change of a visual pattern, neuronal activity in cortical areas exhibited synchrony without time lags; this synchrony was particularly strong between areas subserving related functions. Expand
High-Frequency, Long-Range Coupling Between Prefrontal and Visual Cortex During Attention
TLDR
It is found that attention to a stimulus in their joint receptive field leads to enhanced oscillatory coupling between the two areas, particularly at gamma frequencies, which may optimize the postsynaptic impact of spikes from one area upon the other, improving cross-area communication with attention.

Perception's shadow: long-distance synchronization of human brain activity
TLDR
It is shown for the first time, to the knowledge, that only face perception induces a long-distance pattern of synchronization, corresponding to the moment of perception itself and to the ensuing motor response. Expand

This work hypothesized that the network communicates by means of neural phase synchronization, and used magnetoencephalography to study transient long-range interarea phase coupling in a well studied attentionally taxing dual-target task (attentional blink). Expand

Evidence that certain brain disorders, such as schizophrenia, epilepsy, autism, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's are associated with abnormal neural synchronization is reviewed to suggest close correlations between abnormalities in neuronal synchronization and cognitive dysfunctions. Expand

It is demonstrated that non-invasive magnetic field measurements of gamma oscillations in human visual cortex concur with invasive measures of activation in primate visual cortex, suggesting both a direct representation of underlying neuronal activity and a concurrence between human and primate cortical activity.
