The exploration of time-varying functional connectivity (FC) through human neuroimaging techniques provides important new insights on the spatio-temporal organization of functional communication in the brain's networks and its alterations in diseased brains. However, little is known about the underlying dynamic mechanism with which such a dynamic FC is flexibly organized under the constraint of structural connections. In this work, we explore the relationship between critical dynamics and FC flexibility based on both functional magnetic resonance imaging data and computer models.

Characterizing the fluctuations of dynamic resting-state electrophysiological functional connectivity: Reduced neuronal coupling variability in mild cognitive impairment and dementia due to Alzheimer's disease.
The characterization of brain functional connectivity is a helpful tool in the study of the neuronal substrates and mechanisms that are altered in Azheimer's Disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment...
Recent studies related to assessing functional connectivity (FC) in resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging have revealed that the resulting connectivity patterns exhibit considerable fluc...
Recent studies showed that functional connectivity (FC) in the human brain is not static but can dynamically change across time within time scales of seconds to minutes.
Recovery from a stroke is a dynamic time-dependent process, in which the central nervous system reorganises to accommodate for the impact of the injury. The purpose of this paper is to review recent l...
Previous studies analyzed brain functional connectivity (FC) based on resting-state fMRI (RS-fMRI) data to reveal the neuropathology of bipolar disorder (BD) and suggested that their FC alterations ar...
The purpose of this study is to identify the flexibility radiograph(s) that can most accurately predict the curve behaviour after surgical correction of AIS. With these findings, we hope t...
The aim of the study is to investigate the functional connectivity between the brain regions of the default mode network before and after a 40 min nap slot in the afternoon. The hypothesis...
Functional neural connectivity at rest of 3 groups (heat tolerant, heat intolerant and healthy subjects) will be assessed using the anatomical and functional MRI scans and compared.
The different subtypes of Schizophrenia might have a disordered connectivity as their final common pathways. The investigators will use multimodal structural MRI to assess anatomical conn...
The aim of this proposal is to investigate the effects of uneventful microsurgical and endovascular treatment of unruptured saccular non-giant anterior communicating artery [ACoA] aneurysm...
Exercises that stretch the muscle fibers with the aim to increase muscle-tendon FLEXIBILITY, improve RANGE OF MOTION or musculoskeletal function, and prevent injuries. There are various types of stretching techniques including active, passive (relaxed), static, dynamic (gentle), ballistic (forced), isometric, and others.
A respiratory function test that includes the maximal inspiratory pressure and maximal expiratory pressure. It is determined by SPIROMETRY that measures the patient's RESIDUAL VOLUME and TOTAL LUNG CAPACITY and assesses the strength of RESPIRATORY MUSCLES.
The volume of air that is exhaled by a maximal expiration following a maximal inspiration.
Functional proteins that do not have unique, stable, folded, three-dimensional native structures or that possess non-ordered regions under physiological conditions. They are characterized by extraordinary structural flexibility and plasticity, which enable them to adopt different conformations in response to different stimuli or different interactions.
Loose, usually removable intra-oral devices which alter the muscle forces against the teeth and craniofacial skeleton. These are dynamic appliances which depend on altered neuromuscular action to effect bony growth and occlusal development. They are usually used in mixed dentition to treat pediatric malocclusions.
