Higher-order connectivity in complex systems described by simplexes of different orders provides a geometry for simplex-based dynamical variables and interactions. Simplicial complexes that constitute a functional geometry of the human connectome can be crucial for the brain complex dynamics. In this context, the best-connected brain areas, designated as hub nodes, play a central role in supporting integrated brain function. Here, we study the structure of simplicial complexes attached to eight…

Rich-Club Organization of the Human Connectome

It is demonstrated that brain hubs form a so-called “rich club,” characterized by a tendency for high-degree nodes to be more densely connected among themselves than nodes of a lower degree, providing important information on the higher-level topology of the brain network.

Homological scaffolds of brain functional networks

The results show that the homological structure of the brain's functional patterns undergoes a dramatic change post-psilocybin, characterized by the appearance of many transient structures of low stability and of a small number of persistent ones that are not observed in the case of placebo.

Network methods are increasingly applied in a clinical context, and their promise for elucidating neural substrates of brain and mental disorders is discussed.

The modular and integrative functional architecture of the human brain

A network account of the brain’s modular yet integrated implementation of cognitive functions is provided and a strong spatial correspondence between the cognitive functions and the network”s modules is found, suggesting that each module performs a discrete cognitive function.

Complex network measures of brain connectivity: Uses and interpretations

Algebraic Topology of Multi-Brain Connectivity Networks Reveals Dissimilarity in Functional Patterns during Spoken Communications

This study analyzes the aggregate graph that maps coordination of EEG signals previously recorded during spoken communications in two groups of six listeners and two speakers to reveal that the topological quantifiers provide new suitable measures for differences in the brain activity patterns and inter-brain synchronisation between speakers and listeners.

Graph analysis of functional brain networks: practical issues in translational neuroscience

The aim of this review is to provide practical indications to make sense of brain network analysis and contrast counterproductive attitudes.

Cliques of Neurons Bound into Cavities Provide a Missing Link between Structure and Function

It is proposed that the brain processes stimuli by forming increasingly complex functional cliques and cavities that evolve in a stereotypical sequence toward peak complexity.

Parameterizable consensus connectomes from the Human Connectome Project: the Budapest Reference Connectome Server v3.0

The construction of the version 3.0 of the server is reported, generating the common edges of the connectome of variously parameterizable subsets of the 1015-vertex connectomes of 477 subjects of the Human Connectome Project’s 500-subject release.

The modular organization of human anatomical brain networks: Accounting for the cost of wiring

A modification of an existing module detection algorithm that allowed it to focus on connections that are unexpected under a cost-reduction wiring rule and to identify modules from among these connections, which support the hypothesis that brain networks are composed of modules and provide additional insight into the function of those modules.
