f. Modeling Functional Connectivity of Neuronal Oscillations

Abstract:
Neurons in the brain fire in rhythmic patterns, generating oscillations that neuroscientists have studied for quite some time. These oscillations are results of activity that is local to a single center in the brain, and oscillations in separate areas of the brain can be shown to be functionally connected, implying a connection or communication between two disparate centers in the brain.  This project aims to characterize the functional connectivity between separate areas of the brain as a linear, time-varying system, and thus build strong mathematical models of brain center interactions.
