How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Neuroimaging research has shown that different cognitive tasks induce relatively specific activation patterns, as well as less task-specific deactivation patterns. Here we examined whether individual differences in Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) activity during task performance correlate with the magnitude of task-induced deactivation. In an fMRI s...

Complex systems are described according to two central dimensions: (a) the randomness of their output, quantified via entropy; and (b) their complexity, which reflects the organization of a system's generators. Whereas some approaches hold that complexity can be reduced to uncertainty or entropy, an axiom of complexity science is that signals with...
Conference Paper
Extraction of between-participants common patterns of brain activity is currently one of the most debated challenges in cognitive neuroscience. So far, by applying functional hyperalignment method [1] to functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) data, relevant results have been obtained on datasets where different participants underwent the same...

By combining functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and acquisition of cardiac pulsation during the execution of a cognitive task we identified areas where task-induced changes in brain activity correlated with individuals' cardiac RMSSD. We show the existence of a relationship between task - induced deactivations and RMSSD.

Coding for the degree of disorder in a temporally unfolding sensory input allows for optimized encoding of these inputs via information compression and predictive processing. Prior neuroimaging work has examined sensitivity to statistical regularities within single sensory modalities and has associated this function with the hippocampus, anterior c...
Conference Paper
In longitudinal studies, such as those about neurocognitive rehabilitation or brain plasticity, functional MRI sessions are subsequently recorded to detect how the patterns of activation differs through time. Usually, consecutive recordings are interleaved by a period of treatment or training. The general purpose of fMRI data analysis is to compute...

It is known that the brain's resting-state activity (RSA) is organized in low frequency oscillations that drive network connectivity. Recent research has also shown that elements of RSA described by high-frequency and nonoscillatory properties are non-random and functionally relevant. Motivated by this research, we investigated nonoscillatory aspec...
Article
Correlated fluctuations of low-frequency fMRI signal have been suggested to reflect functional connectivity among the involved regions. However, large-scale correlations are especially prone to spurious global modulations induced by coherent physiological noise. Cardiac and respiratory rhythms are the most offending component, and a tailored prepro...
