Enhanced repertoire of brain dynamical states during the psychedelic experience

The present results provide a comprehensive account of the effects of psilocybin on dynamical behavior in the human brain at a macroscopic level and may have implications for the understanding of the unconstrained, hyper‐associative quality of consciousness in the psychedelic state.

Adaptive reconfiguration of fractal small-world human brain functional networks

Human brain functional networks demonstrate a fractal small-world architecture that supports critical dynamics and task-related spatial reconfiguration while preserving global topological parameters.

Awakening: Predicting external stimulation to force transitions between different brain states

A quantitative and robust definition of a brain state as an ensemble of “metastable substates,” each with a probabilistic stability and occurrence frequency fitted by a generative whole-brain model, fine-tuned on the basis of the effective connectivity is described.

Emerging concepts for the dynamical organization of resting-state activity in the brain

Three large-scale neural system models of primate neocortex that emphasize the key contributions of local dynamics, signal transmission delays and noise to the emerging RSNs are reviewed.

The connectomics of brain disorders

This work considers how brain-network topology shapes neural responses to damage, highlighting key maladaptive processes and the resources and processes that enable adaptation, and shows how knowledge of network topology allows for predictive models of the spread and functional consequences of brain disease.

Efficiency and Cost of Economical Brain Functional Networks

Efficiency was reduced disproportionately to cost in older people, and the detrimental effects of age on efficiency were localised to frontal and temporal cortical and subcortical regions.

Small-world networks and functional connectivity in Alzheimer's disease.

Graph theoretical analysis was applied to matrices of functional connectivity of beta band-filtered electroencephalography (EEG) channels and it was demonstrated that AD is characterized by a loss of small-world network characteristics.

A Resilient, Low-Frequency, Small-World Human Brain Functional Network with Highly Connected Association Cortical Hubs

It is concluded that correlated, low-frequency oscillations in human fMRI data have a small-world architecture that probably reflects underlying anatomical connectivity of the cortex, and could provide a physiological substrate for segregated and distributed information processing.
