In cognitive network neuroscience, the connectivity and community structure of the brain network is related to measures of cognitive performance, like attention and memory. Research in this emerging discipline has largely focused on two measures of connectivity—modularity and flexibility—which, for the most part, have been examined in isolation. The current project investigates the relationship between these two measures of connectivity and how they make separable contribution to predicting… Expand
Functional Imaging Connectome of the Human Brain and its Associations with Biological and Behavioral Characteristics
TLDR
A large rfMRI dataset from the Human Connectome Project (HCP) is investigated and statistical methods are utilized to facilitate the understanding of fundamental FC–behavior associations of the human brain. Expand
Longitudinal functional brain network reconfiguration in healthy aging
TLDR
The results indicate that older age is related to higher variability in modular organization, and global flexibility, as well as network‐specific flexibility of the default mode, frontoparietal control, and somatomotor networks, were significantly associated with age at baseline. Expand
Static and dynamic functional connectivity supports the configuration of brain networks associated with creative cognition
TLDR
The results demonstrate the temporal connectivity of the dynamic large-scale creative networks between default mode network (DMN), salience network, and cerebellar network during creative cognition, and advance the understanding of the network neuroscience of creative cognition. Expand
Static and Dynamic Aspects of Cerebro-Cerebellar Functional Connectivity are Associated with Self-reported Measures of Impulsivity: A Resting-State fMRI Study
TLDR
It is found that sensation seeking was associated with the temporal variability of FC between the cerebellum and networks that included cortical control regions and sub-cortical reward regions: the basal ganglia and the thalamus. Expand
Static and dynamic aspects of cerebro-cerebellar functional connectivity are associated with self-reported measures of impulsivity: A resting-state fMRI study
TLDR
Evidence linking BIS, BAS, sensation seeking, and lack of premeditation to the total strength and temporal variability of FC within networks connecting regions of the prefrontal cortex, precuneus, posterior cingulate cortex, basal ganglia, and thalamus with the cerebellum is observed. Expand
Learning in brain-computer interface control evidenced by joint decomposition of brain and behavior.
TLDR
This work constructs and applies a multimodal network approach to decipher brain-behavior relations in BCI learning using magnetoencephalography, and posit a conceptual model in which certain subgraphs support learning by modulating brain activity in regions important for sustaining attention. Expand
Network controllability mediates the relationship between rigid structure and flexible dynamics
TLDR
This work demonstrated that the ability of a brain region to flexibly change its functional module allegiance over time was positively correlated with its proportion of anatomical edges projecting to multiple cognitive networks, a metric capturing its capacity to integrate information across multiple cognitive domains. Expand
Atypical Flexibility in Dynamic Functional Connectivity Quantifies the Severity in Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
A strong positive correlation of symptom severity with flexibility of rigid areas and with disjointness of sensorimotor areas is found in ASD, demonstrating that the dynamic framework best characterizes the variability in ASD. Expand
The correspondence problem: which brain maps are significantly similar?
TLDR
This paper addresses the correspondence problem using a spatial permutation framework to generate null models of overlap, by applying random rotations to spherical representations of the cortical surface, and uses this approach to derive clusters of cognitive functions that are significantly similar in terms of their functional neuroatomical substrates.

Test-retest reliability of dynamic functional connectivity in resting state fMRI
&NA; While static functional connectivity (sFC) of resting state fMRI (rfMRI) measures the average functional connectivity (FC) over the entire rfMRI scan, dynamic FC (dFC) captures the temporalExpand

Brain Modularity Mediates the Relation between Task Complexity and Performance
TLDR
A framework for linking measures of whole-brain organization from network neuroscience to cognitive processing is provided, which finds a negative correlation between individuals' modularity and their performance on a composite measure combining scores from the complex tasks but a positive correlation with performance from the simple tasks.

The Segregation and Integration of Distinct Brain Networks and Their Relationship to Cognition
TLDR
It is confirmed that the human brain has the remarkable ability to reconfigure its large-scale organization dynamically in response to current cognitive demands and that interpreting reconfiguration in terms of network segregation and integration may shed light on the optimal network structures underlying successful cognition.

Functional Brain Network Modularity Captures Inter- and Intra-Individual Variation in Working Memory Capacity
TLDR
How changes in the organization of large-scale networks measured via resting state functional connectivity MRI and graph theory track changes in working memory capacity is examined to suggest the intrinsic functional organization of an a priori defined cognitive control network measured at rest provides substantial information about actual cognitive performance.

Quasispecies theory is used to predict how the average modularity evolves with age, illustrating the increase of modularity during development from children to adults that arises from selection for rapid cognitive function in young adults. Expand
