BACKGROUND

 

Seminar

PSY344index.html
 
 

In this class, we will investigate both classic and recent findings on the neural mechanisms that are responsible for the neverending background activity within our brains. We will cover and discuss insights into the spatiotemporal organization of ongoing, spontaneous neural activity ranging from the first descriptions of the electroencephalogram to the latest finding on resting state functional connectivity, the default network, graph theory and connectomics, including the Brain Activity Map (BAM) and the Human Connectome Project.


The course is a discussion-oriented, graduate-level seminar. Each class will focus on the discussion of a weekly topic that gets introduced in the form of a seminar talk by one of the students.
