Session Number: SW05
This session will discuss emerging techniques to measure dynamic and non-stationary features of functional connectivity MRI. This session will also discuss electrophysiological underpinnings of these features and their potential utility in clinical applications.
Scientists and clinicians interested in techniques and applications of functional brain imaging.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Explain evidences that functional connectivity is non-stationary and has dynamic features;
-Describe approaches to quantify dynamic functional connectivity such as sliding-window method, single-volume method, and time-frequency coherence analysis;
-Outline examples of clinical applications of dynamic connectivity; and
-Recognize current challenges of dynamic connectivity and its future directions.
