Article
While averaged dynamics of brain function are known to estimate the underlying structure, the exact relationship between large-scale function and structure remains an unsolved issue in network neuroscience. These complex functional dynamics, measured by EEG and fMRI, are thought to arise from a shared underlying structural architecture, which can b...
Article
Full-text available
The discovery of a stable, whole-brain functional connectivity organization that is largely independent of external events has drastically extended our view of human brain function. However, this discovery has been primarily based on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The role of this whole-brain organization in fast oscillation-based co...
Article
Full-text available
Concurrent electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) bridge brain connectivity across timescales. During concurrent EEG-fMRI resting-state recordings, whole-brain functional connectivity (FC) strength is spatially correlated across modalities. However, cross-modal investigations have commonly remained correlation...
Article
Full-text available
Long-range connectivity has become the most studied feature of human functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), yet the spatial and temporal relationship between its whole-brain dynamics and electrophysiological connectivity remains largely unknown. FMRI-derived functional connectivity exhibits spatial reconfigurations or time-varying dynamics a...
Article
Full-text available
Both electroencephalography (EEG) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) are non-invasive methods that show complementary aspects of human brain activity. Despite measuring different proxies of brain activity, both the measured blood-oxygenation (fMRI) and neurophysiological recordings (EEG) are indirectly coupled. The electrophysiologica...
Preprint
Whole brain, large-scale functional connectivity networks or connectomes have been characterized on different temporal and spatial scales in humans using EEG and fMRI. Whole brain epileptic networks have been investigated with both EEG and fMRI, but due to the different acquisition approaches it is unclear to what extent those results can be relate...

Full-text available
Connectome Mapper 3 (CMP3) is an open-source processing pipeline software, written in Python 3, for multi-scale multi-modal connectome mapping of the human brain. It provides researchers with a unique workflow, implemented in accordance with the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) App framework, that leverages a number of widely adopted software to...
Preprint
Full-text available
The large-scale organization of functional connectivity (FC) – the functional connectome – traverses distinct spatial patterns in a dynamic trajectory as demonstrated independently in fMRI and electrophysiological studies. These patterns are thought to satisfy ever-changing processing demands. FMRI and electrophysiology capture partly non-overlappi...
Article
Purpose: Simultaneously recorded electroencephalography and functional magnetic resonance imaging (EEG-fMRI) is highly informative yet technically challenging. Until recently, there has been little information about EEG data quality and safety when used with newer multi-band (MB) fMRI sequences. Here, we measure the relative heating of a MB protoc...

Until recently, there has been little information about the data quality and safety when used with newer multi-band (MB) fMRI sequences. Here, we assessed heating-related safety of a MB proto...
Article
Full-text available
Dynamic Functional Connectivity (dFC) in the resting state (rs) is considered as a correlate of cognitive processing. Describing dFC as a flow across morphing connectivity configurations, our notion of dFC speed quantifies the rate at which FC networks evolve in time. Here we probe the hypothesis that variations of rs dFC speed and cognitive perfor...
Preprint
Both electroencephalography (EEG) and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) are non-invasive methods that show complementary aspects of human brain activity. Despite their differences in probing brain activity, both electrophysiology and BOLD signal can map the underlying functional connectivity structure at the whole brain scale at differen...

Preprint
Large-scale functional connectivity of the human brain, commonly observed using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), exhibits a whole-brain spatial organization termed the functional connectome. The fMRI-derived connectome shows dynamic reconfigurations that are behaviorally relevant. Due to the indirect nature of fMRI, it is unclear wheth...
Article
Full-text available
Resting-state connectivity has been widely studied in the healthy and pathological brain. Less well-characterized are the brain networks altered during pharmacological interventions and their possible interaction with vigilance. In the hopes of finding new biomarkers which can be used to identify cortical activity and cognitive processes linked to...

Objective To determine the impact of Zika virus (ZIKV) infection on brain structure and functional organization of severely affected adult patients with neurological complications that extend beyond Guillain–Barré Syndrome (GBS)‐like manifestations and include symptoms of the central nervous system (CNS). Methods In this first case–control neuroim...

For the first time in research in humans, we used simultaneous icEEG-fMRI to examine the link between connectivity in haemodynamic signals during the resting-state (rs) and connectivity derived from electrophysiological activity in terms of the inter-modal connectivity correlation (IMCC). We quantified IMCC in nine patients with drug-resistant epil...
Article
In light of technical advancements supporting exploration of MR signals other than 1H, sodium (23Na) has received attention as a marker of ionic homeostasis and cell viability. Here, we evaluate for the first time the possibility that 23Na-MRI is sensitive to pathological processes occurring in human epilepsy. A normative sample of 27 controls was...
Article
Background: Intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) of the primary motor cortex improves transiently lower limbs spasticity in multiple sclerosis (MS). However, the cerebral mechanisms underlying this effect have never been investigated. Objective: To assess whether modulation of spasticity induced by iTBS is underlined by functional reorgan...

Diagonistic dyspraxia (DD) is by far the most spectacular manifestation reported by sufferers of acute CC injury (so-called ‘split-brain’). In this form of alien hand syndrome, one hand acts at cross purposes with the other ‘against the patient’s will’. Although recent models view DD as a disorder of motor control, there is still little information...

The in vivo structure-function relationship is key to understanding brain network reorganization due to pathologies. This relationship is likely to be particularly complex in brain network diseases such as temporal lobe epilepsy, in which disturbed large-scale systems are involved in both transient electrical events and long-lasting functional and...

The aim of this study was to investigate the neural substrate underlying quality of life (QoL) and to demonstrate the microstructural abnormalities associated with impaired QoL in a large sample of patients with schizophrenia, using magnetisation transfer imaging. A total of 81 right-handed men with a diagnosis of schizophrenia and 25 age- and sex-...
